Full description

Child, P., 1998, Countryside Stewardship. Stable at Overweir, Umberleigh (Correspondence). SDV349297.

Stable at Over Weir, comprising a small building with a central door flanked by a window on each side with a first floor loft. Of rubble stone and cob, the roof is now clad in corrugated iron but was originally thatched. The style of the roof trusses date the construction of the building between 1750 and 1850. A fairly common form for traditional stables on Devon farms. Abutting the stable is the remains of another traditional building which appears to have been a single storey, open-fronted animal house. It has been enlarged by bringing the roof forward on the open side. Not recommended for Countryside Stewardship grant aid partly due to the fact that the adjacent buildings have been modernised or are new and partly to the amount of repair that would be required.
