    I'd say it look more like something for clamping an animals head in to keep it still. I don't know for what purpose though.

    Thats is a seriously medieval looking cattlecrush in that last picture...Used to hold a cow still so you could do things like cut their horns off , administer treatments such as injections or drenchs ...inspect feet without getting the shit kicked outta ya etc etc
    The whole place looks rip for conversion to a fine house........

    Plans have already been submitted and approved for it to be demolished and houses built on the site. There used to be a lot more to it but it was knocked down recently.

    Yeah there was loads of rubble and what looked like foundations being laid.
    Thanks for the info on the cattlecrusher.

    Shame they're going to demolish the main stone parts of the whole building. Would have preferred it if they spent the money converting the building that is there into a lovely strong house. Work to convert it wouldn't be too difficult, I'd have thought, (been watching programme on tv about people moving to a different part of the country, buying a derelict house/barn and converting/renovating the property.

    Cheers,

    Sal
