SX 78 SE

1/175 L-shaped range of buildings on
- north-east and north-west sides
of South Harton Farmyard,
including the front and rear
gateways and the linhay attached
to the south-west corner of the
north-east range

Farm buildings. Probably C18 and C19; the north-east range is not shown on the
tithe map of 1838. Granite rubble with corrugated-iron roofs, formerly thatched;
north-east range seems to have been designed for cattle on the ground storey with
storage lofts above, being interrupted in the middle by a large gateway rising
through both storeys. Externally the range has a fortress-like appearance with
slit windows in each storey, those of the upper storey being set immediately below
the eaves. There is a solitary full-size window to left of the gateway. The
latter has a segmental arch of rough-faced granite with a smooth border and raised
keystone. In the south-east gable which, because of the fall in the ground, has a
basement storey, is a round-arched doorway with a raised keystone; its lower part
is blocked by a large piece of granite, forming a reservoir filled by a stream
running down from the north-west end of the farmyard. The inward face of the
range, towards the farmyard, has few features, apart from a gateway matching that
on the outside and some simple doorways, 1 with a plank door having old wrought-
iron hinges. Roof has old trusses with collars pegged to the faces of the
principal rafters. At right-angles to this range, facing into the farmyard on the
south-west, is a linhay built on to an earlier crenellated wall; it has 2 granite
posts at the front and a king-post-and-ridge roof.
The north-west range is in 3 builds. The 2 right-hand sections, to the north-east,
contain a bank barn; at the rear are 2 wide doorways entered across a gulley by
bridges formed of granite lintels, while at the front is a flight of granite steps.
The left-hand section has 3 wide segmental-headed openings in the ground storey,
these having heavy voussoirs and raised keystones. To the left of them is a flight
of granite steps. The whole north-west range has been re-roofed in C20. At right-
angles to the north-west end of it is a stone gateway having a 4-centred arch of
rough-faced granite. Beyond it, continuing the range to the north-west, is an
open-fronted cartshed having a gable window with a cranked head.
The 2 ranges form the main part of a very good farmyard layout, of which 2 other
buildings and the manure pit are listed.
