The cartshed at Glebe Farm is an L-shaped building on a triangle of land between the south wall of Widecombe churchyard and the lane to Venton Bridge. A survey was undertaken in 2009 prior to refurbishment. Several phases of development were identified. The structure was originally built in the early 19th century as a cartshed with attached timber structures, paddock and yard. In the mid 20th century it was possible used as a pig shed. The main structure was blocked by the late 20th century when a chalet/summerhouse with garage and garden occupied the site.
