Cellar, Woolmers

At Woolmers Estate, near Longford. The steps down to the cellar are at the end there, on the other side of the railing.


At the top is an information panel that says:

CELLARS
Part of the original construction of the weatherboard homestead. The Cellar rooms are paved in sandstone flags and have a ceiling height of 2700mm (9 feet). Drainage pits in the floors of each room appear to maintain a steady level. Pin in room 4 remains constantly empty. Vaulted storage bins added in 1840s. Possibly to house the cider barrels.

Original entrance to the cellar was through a trap door from inside the house. Present entrance down timber topped brick steps install in the 1840s.

Callington Mill (restored).

Callington Mill, Oatlands. A working flour mill built in 1837. It was restored earlier this century and reopened in 2010. (Wikipedia.)

These photos are from 2015. There is another post with photos from 2008, during the restoration period, which shows inside before the installation of the equipment.

Unfortunately, these photos were taken late in the day so the light is poor. There better ones (some included below and others in linked posts) from 2018.

Carriage House, Entally

Entally Estate: the original house was built 1819 and modified over the following decades. The yards at the back have a number of farm buildings constructed over the same period, including this carriage house and stable building.


The stable area is on the right. The carriage area is on the left.

This a rough plan to give an idea of the relationship between the different parts of the building. The area over the back is more storage for carriages, that faces onto a different yard.

CARRIAGE/COACH HOUSE


Door on left goes through to a small room (Livery or Coachman's room the panel says).


This room has a fireplace and, to the right, stairs that lead to the upper level.

Door for loading grain etc. to be stored up here.
