Building Recording of CoVE Building at Askham Bryan College. The site originated as a farmstead with mixed uses. The north range appears to have been a barn (probably a multi-functional building) with a cartshed at its western bays with a granary or hayloft over. The east wing was most likely a cattle shelter shed and the west wing housed horses. In the mid-20th century, the site was developed by Askham Bryan College and it acquired a variety of uses. Today, the north range of the CoVE Building remains in use as a teaching space and also houses offices for College staff and the farm office. The east and west wings are currently vacant. Previously a branch of The Minster Veterinary Practice Ltd occupied the west wing and a training centre for Delicious Yorkshire occupied the east wing. The building form creates a central courtyard that has recently been used as informal carā€parking and equipment storage. NMR Information: Auspices: Humble Heritage Alternate Name (Type: Alternative) - OASIS FORM RESULTS: BUILDING SURVEY A building record was required to identify and document any items of archaeological and architectural interest prior to the demolition of part of the CoVE Building at Askham Bryan College, York. This report has been prepared by Humble Heritage during January 2016 on behalf of Askham Bryan College and surveyors at Aspect 4 Limited. It provides a photographic, descriptive and drawn record of the CoVE Building in line with the Archaeological Written Scheme of Investigation prepared by Humble Heritage and agreed with York City Council Archaeologist in December 2015. The site under consideration is an early 19th century farmstead that developed increasingly specialised cattle farming functions over time before being incorporated within the operation at Askham Bryan College, which opened in 1948. Information from OASIS Online Form.
