Full description

Department of Environment, 1988, Rose Ash, 85 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV344395.

Threshing barn and horse engine house in farmyard south-west of South Yarde. Early C19, possibly a refashioning of an earlier barn. Stone rubble, the barn with a slate roof, gabled at ends, the horse engine house re-roofed with corrugated iron.
Plan: sited at right angles to the farmhouse on a north-south axis with the horse engine house adjoining on the east side. The barn has opposed double threshing doors. The circa early 19th century roof structure may be a replacement.
Exterior: the double threshing doors have stone checks on both the west and east sides, with timber plank doors.
Interior: nailed 'a' frame trusses of early C19 character. Part of an unusually well-preserved group of farm buildings, and extremely important to the setting of the farmhouse.

Keystone Historic Buildings Consultants, 1993, South Yarde Farm, Rose Ash, Devon, 6 (Report - Survey). SDV344396.

West side of the farmyard is formed by a threshing barn with the remains of a relatively large circular horse-engine house on the east side. The horse engine house post-dates the Tithe Map but the barn is probably 18th century or earlier.
