  • BANK BARN (XIX - 1848 AD to 1859 AD (Between))

Full description

Buck, C., 2015, Buctor Farm, Tavistock (Report - Assessment). SDV359746.

This study was commissioned by the landowner on behalf of Natural England as part of a Higher Level Environmental Stewardship Agreement Scheme and produced by Cornwall Archaeological Unit, Cornwall Council.

This typical 19th century bank barn (the upslope bank now removed) appears to have been built between 1848 (Fig 7) and 1859 (Fig 8), and is shown on archive maps thereafter.

There was (remnants remain) cider pound/press apparatus within the building, and an extant apple crusher. Traditionally stone built with granite quoins, a half-hipped slate roof with the bank on the north side.

None – the building is privately owned by Mr Hutchins and is out of the Stewardship area. However, although it is not Listed as a national heritage asset, its significance is high. Therefore it is hoped that any scheme for conservation would be appropriate to its group value with the associated and adjacent Listed farmhouse.
