Listing Text

SX 99 SE
1/29 Linhay immediately north-west
- of Ivington Farmhouse


Linhay with tallet above, forming the north-west range of a planned farmstead.
Built in 1846 by the Garretts of Bishop's Court as the Home Farm. Red brick in
Flemish bond; dry slate roof, gabled-end to left, hipped to right. 8 bays, with
brick piers between linhays, timber posts above between bays of tallet. To the
left, and under the continuous roof which connects with the end of the bank barn
(q.v.)., is a wagon entrance from the main farmyard to the rear yard. Breezeblock
and corrugated infill to some of the bays has not damaged the 1846 fabric.
Roof: tie beam and 2 diagonal struts to each truss.
A pigsty that formed a short range between the end of the linhay and the farmhouse
(q.v.) is the only part of this otherwise complete and well-preserved planned
farmhouse to have been demolished.
