Plaistow Barton represents a group of post-medieval farm buildings and structures which reflect the changing fortunes and fashions in North Devon agriculture over the last 350 years. The present farm dates from the 17th century, circa 1679, with several of the farm buildings including the threshing barn also constructed around this time. During the 19th century several new buildings were constructed, including another barn, and a round house for a horse engine against the exisiting threshing barn. This was demolished in the late 19th century and replaced by an engine house attached to the newer barn. Historic building recording and archaeological monitoring of groundworks, during conversion of the two barns to dwellings, revealed no earlier features, finds or deposits. Other details: Figures 2-14.
