Full description

Child, P., 2003, Historic Farm Buildings Group: Annual Conference Devon 19-21 September 2003, 18; Plan (Report - non-specific). SDV351745.

The oldest farm building is the granary/cider cellar, which uncharacteristically for Devon is constructed of brick. Stylistically it would appear to date to the late 18th/early 19th century. Its awkward angled siting in relation to the rest of the yard reflects the fact that it with the two adjacent barns and the engine house are the survivors of an earlier yard which abutted a lane running on the angle of the granary and which is shown on the 1840 Tithe Map. After 1840 the lane was moved to the north to make way for the new large yard . The cider cellar was inconveniently remote from the pound house where the cider was made and which is attached to the rear of the farmhouse.
The upper floor is unsafe.
