ST 10 SE
10/84 Stables, courtyard and barn
- adjoining south-east of Lower
Adjoining stables, cowhouse and barn. The barn is late C16 - early C17, the rest
are late C19. Local stone and flint rubble including some cob, and some C20 concrete
block patching; corrugated iron roofs, formerly thatch.
Plan: range of adjoining farmbuildings enclosing 2 sides of a cobbled courtyard, the
farmhouse (q.v.) forms the third side. The late C16 - early C17 barn stands
opposite the farmhouse (approximately 20 metres in front of it) and faces north-west
into the coutyard. It is a threshing barn with opposing full height doorways onto
the threshing barn. The stables project at right angles from the lower (south-
western) end of the farmhouse and face east into the courtyard. There is a
carriageway through the stables which is the main entrance to the farmyard. The
stables and barn are connected by the cowhouse which is set across the angle between
the other farmbuildings.
Exterior: the barn has a small central full height doorway containing C19 double
doors. There is a hayloft loading hatch to left and a small secondary doorway to
right. The roof is hipped each end. The cowhouse was originally open-fronted but is
now clad with corrugated iron. The section of the stable left of the carriageway is
weather-boarded with 2 doorways and the stone section to right of the carriageway
contains a doorway with a window alongside to right.
Interior: the barn is mostly open to the roof in which 2 side-pegged jointed cruck
trusses remain with the remains of a third of the original 4 trusses.
The cowhouse was originally open-fronted and 6 bays. The front posts support the
roof trusses which appear to incorporate probably C18 A-frame trusses. The stables
have plain late C19 carpentry detail.
The farmbuildings form an attractive group with Lower Wick Farmhouse (q.v) of
traditional Devon buildings ranged round a cobbled courtyard and also form a group
with other listed buildings in the hamlet of Wick.
