Full description

TO THE FARM COURTYARD, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV249775.

Barn approx 1.5m north of ford farmhouse. Threshing barn with horse engine house. Late c17-early c18. Partly plastered granite stone rubble with parts of cob; slate roof, formerly thatch. Plan and exterior: threshing barn on a north-south axis containing opposing doorways to the threshing floor set south of centre. The east doorway (to the farm courtyard) is smaller than the other but neither are full height and there is a roughly central hayloft loading hatch on the east side. Roof is hipped to south and gable-ended to north. A c19 horse engine house projects from the north end of the west side. It projects a short distance at right angles and has a semi-hexagonal end. It is open-sided although there are low rubble walls each side and the end is supported on a series of monolithic granite posts. It contains a beam of enormous scantling but no machinery remains. Its roof is hipped.
