PRN 65605 - Pentre - lludw cow shed

NGR :- SH9405503477 (SH90SW)
Prefered site type :- Post Medieval - Cow shed (Building - Damaged )

A two-storey gabled rubble-stone cow shed, near destroyed, which forms part of a small farmstead.

The surviving southern section of the cow shed has three doorways at ground floor level, forming the east facing elevation; two of these doors to the south giving access to the interior of the building, the third to the north would have given access to the missing northern end. Two vertical ventilation slits can be seen to the south and north of the central doorway. A first floor has a single opening to the north. The south facing gable end has a small square window with two vertical ventilation slits to either side at ground floor level with a larger opening at first floor level. The west facing elevation has six vertical ventilation slits with no other openings. The north facing gable is now formed by a corrugated iron and part breeze block wall. Evidence of the missing section of the building can be seen as a low wall some 0.2m height.

Two tie-beam trusses with inclined raking struts support a modern single purlin corrugated iron roof. A timber box frame attached to each tie-beam forms internal divisions. (CPAT Tir Gofal assessment, 2003)
