Significance of the results:
A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust on a brick building at Skilletts Farm, School Road, Pentlow in July 2022.
The building is unlisted but is within the curtilage of the Grade II listed farmhouse at Skilletts. It is a brick building comprising a stable, cart lodge and cattle shed. It dates to the mid-19th century and is the only remaining building from what would have been an expansive farmyard to the north of Skilletts farmhouse. It is constructed of red bricks, with a slate roof. The part of the building nearest to the farmhouse has been significantly rebuilt on its south and west sides. The door and window openings in both this part of the building and the original stable and cartlodge appear to be in the original locations and in the stable and cart lodge the furniture for these is thought to be
at least early if not original.
