Full description

Humphreys, C., 2001, Cadeleigh Court: Archaeological Assessment (Report - Assessment). SDV44405.

Attached to the east side of the threshing barn is an engine house of stone construction with brick quoins under a corrugated iron roof, built between 1840 and 1888, replacing an earlier structure.

Wakeham, C., 2006, Archaeological Building Survey of Farm Buildings at Cadeleigh Court, Cadeleigh, Devon, 7-9, 11, 12-13 (Report - Survey). SDV344514.

Engine house on east side of threshing barn constructed of coursed slate stonework with brick quoins and window dressings. Now roofless. Inside are three concrete engine mounting blocks together with a dislodged shaft with three pulley wheels. The Tithe Map shows a building on the site of the present engine house and it is suggested that this was a horse engine house. The use of bull nose bricks on the present building suggests that it was built in the early 20th century. See report for full details.
