Barn and stables at Byes Farm. C18 with late-C19 remodelling of the stables.
Reasons for Designation
The Barn and Stables at Byes Farm are listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
Architectural interest:
* alterations have been relatively minor, and they retain a significant proportion of historic fabric which clearly illustrates their functions; * the threshing barn is a substantially intact example of strong vernacular character, and the stables retain a good range of fittings.
Historic interest:
* as part of a largely-complete C18 farmstead which illustrates the character and nature of local farming practices within the context of the overall national patterns in farming history.
Group value:
* with the other Grade II-listed farm buildings which are linked by their date and appearance.
They are constructed of random rubble stone, with dressings of red brick to the stables, under corrugated-metal roof coverings.
The barn is orientated north to south. It is a tall, single-storey building of five bays with wide, full-height openings in the west and east elevations.
The two-storey stable building has a symmetrical front
The barn has an open plan with a central threshing bay.
The agricultural buildings are grouped loosely around two yards. The linhay to the north, and milking shed, barn and stables to the east form an L-shaped plan around a yard.
Date first listed: 14th April 2020
