Langbeer Farm is a good example of a parallel block plan. The annotated plan shows a 16th century farmhouse with a barn and cartshed to the south and a linhay to the north. The farm buildings are 19th century in date all with corrugated iron roofs. The linhay is in poor condition.


Devon and Somerset County Councils, 2000-2002, Historic Farmsteads Database, BH172 (Machine readable data file). SDV349681.

The traditional yard, close to the house, has not significantly changed in plan, since at least the 1840's. A modern yard has evolved on a new site, away from the house. Although there are few traditional buildings, they are fairly well-preserved. The 18th-early 19th century first floor threshing barn is unusual as there is no direct access to the threshing floor for wagons. Parallel ranges. The yard is roughly square, with the farmhouse in the centre. The linhay is to the north of the house, and the barn and wagon lodge are to the south. On the Tithe map and the 1889 Ordnance Survey map there is a further building in the south east corner of the yard, facing west, which has now disappeared. Modern concrete farmyard surface.
