Contained in this page are photographs of Chithurst Cartshed showing details of its structure, and a drawing showing the structure in its original condition.

Chithurst Cartshed is a traditional open-ended cartshed, typical of those built around 1700. It is oak-framed with a superb staggered butt purlin roof. Latterly it had a corrugated iron roof replacing the peg tiles. the cartshed was blown over in a storm, but was cushioned and held together by the iron roof. The frame is in very good condition and is an impressive example of its type.
