Type and Period (1)
Locksley House is a timber-framed and rendered farmhouse of the early 17th C and is listed at Grade II.
The clay lump shed to which it belongs dates to the mid-19th C and does not resemble a traditional barn of the period. It is entered by 2 small, half hung doors in its front elevation, and a single small door to the rear. There is no evidence of any internal partitions or surviving fixtures or fittings to indicate the purpose for which it was originally designed.
In the absence of any other agricultural buildings it likely served as an animal feed store and possibly in part as a stable. An incised evil averting symbol in the form of a 'daisy wheel' is visible on internal surface of the N gable. Others may be hidden behind the sheds contents.
The building is of some historical importance as a clay lump outbuilding, but is not of any particular historical significance.
