Pigsties are normally associated with hen houses rather than earth closets but here the two would seem to be of the same build. The quarried stonework set in mortar suggests a mid 19th century date for the structure. It is not clear exactly how the pig sty was roofed, but a longitudinal timber suggests a lean-to roof, which would certainly match other examples. DETAILS - The earth closet has two seats with lids, and is whitewashed internally. A window? in the gable of the pig sty is unusual, and this may have originally been a small doorway to a chicken house instead. The window on the east side is also glazed, suggesting this section was roofed but quite why this should be so is not clear. A slate lintel over the northern gate in some way supports this suggestion, not confirmed by the 1914 map. There is a bee hole in the wall just to the north (Higgins, M, 01/07/1986).
