Hill Barn

Hob Uid: 1086588
Location :
Somerset West and Taunton
Grid Ref : SS9240040650
Summary : Hill Barn is visible as a ruined building with associated earthworks of a yard and pond.
More information : For details see Somerset SMR. (1)

A visit by the Somerset SMR officer in 1987 describes Hill Barn as follows "Only earthworks remain at the site - there is a pond with a substantial platform next to it and the vague outlines of the barn shown as just a few courses of stone".

Hill Barn is shown on the 1st edition OS 25" mapping of 1888 (sheet Somerset XLVI.3). A three-celled barn is depicted between two hedged paddocks or yards, one to the north, one to the south. At the southern end of the the latter is a large pond. (2)

The remains of Hill Barn are as described in the SMR. They seem to represent a former outfarm, probably associated with the enclosing of Harwood Brakes. (3)
