right of midstrey an arched opening to an undercroft. The upper, or south side,
has central plank doors to full height, and a loading hatch at high level each side.
Interior in 3 bays, with framed principals and tie-beam but added collar, two
clasped purlins; all the roof timbers appear to be original, and the purlins are
tusk-tenoned to principal rafters. Interior seems always to have been without floors
to hay lofts.
On the north side a stone wall running west from the west gable, and returning to
enclose a square yard, concrete paved.
An attractive and very complete farm group, similar to other barns in the area,
part of the Yarncombe Estate, built at the expense of Sir T.F.E. Drake. The building
has high landscape value.

GV II

Field barn. Circa 1840. Local stone and flint rubble with Hamstone ashlar
dressings; corrugated asbestos roof, formerly slate. The threshing barn is built
across the hillslope and faces north. It has opposing central full height doorways
onto the threshing floor. The front doorway contains double doors and is flanked by
short projecting midstrey walls. The rear doorway also flanked by short projecting
midstrey walls. The rear doorway also contains double doors and there is a hayloft
loading hatch each side. The roof is gable-ended with Hamstone shaped kneelers and
coping. Interior was not inspected.
The ground falls away in front of the barn but there is a terrace there revetted
with stone rubble walls which rise to a low parapet.
This is an attractive field barn built in the style of several other barns in the
area which were part of the Yarcombe estate and built at the expense of Sir T F E
Drake in the 1830's and 1840's. This particular example is well-preserved and has
strong landscape value.
