Full description

Department of Environment, 1988, Spreyton, 215 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV350986.

Stables, former linhay. Late C17 or C18. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings, weather-boarded front; thatch roof. Plan and exterior description: the stable block faces south-east into the courtyard behind Bush House (q.v). It was originally an open-fronted linhay except at the right end where the cob wall returns half a bay across the front. The front was weather-boarded in the C20 and there are stable doors each end and C20 windows above. The centre portion has been since knocked out for a car port. The roof is half-hipped to right and gable-ended to left where it abuts a later stable block (q.v). Behind this is the original 5-bay front. Large roughly-finished crossbeams rest on monolithic granite posts. On the top timber posts rise through the tallet/hayloft and curve inwards to clasp the outer principals of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. This stable (former linhay) and the other thatched farmbuildings associated with Bush House (q.v) form an attractive group in the village.
