Wakeham, C., 2007, Survey and report on the ruined farmstead at Leathertor, Walkhampton, Devon, 12-14 (Report - Survey). SDV349994.

The barn was constructed in 1873. Best described as a ‘chamber barn’ with the various components all housed under one roof, with shippen etc on the ground floor and threshing barn above. The barn is located to the north-east of the house and only the remains of two walls are now discernable. Judging from the Tithe map, the north-eastern end of the barn would have intersected with the lower end of the building thought to be West Leathertor farmhouse.
