3/69 Barn and cider house approximately
- 4 metres south-east of Poltimore
Barn, cider house and outbuildings. The main block is late C18 - early C19, the
outbuildings are late C19. Local stone and flint rubble; slate roof.
Plan: the main block is built down a gentle hillslope and faces into the farm
courtyard to the north-north-west, say north. Uphill at the left (east) end is a
barn with a threshing machine which used to be worked by a waterwheel in the rear
wall powered by a leat. To right is the cider house with apple loft over. The late
C19 extension is on the right (west) end and built at an angle to the main block and
faces north-east. It is a lower block and contains a former bull pen, pony stable
and gig shed with hayloft over.
Exterior: both these blocks contain an irregular arrangement of doorways and
unglazed windows, all plain C19 joinery. The large double doors to the barn are at
the left end of the main block and raised above ground level to facilitate loading
and unloading from carts. The main block roof is hipped to left and gable-ended to
right and steps down from barn to cider house. The extension has a central hayloft
loading hatch rising into the eaves with gable roof. The main roof here is gabled
to right and hipped to left.
Interior: contains plain C19 carpentry detail.
This barn, cider house and outbuildings along with the other farmbuildings form a
good and attractive group of traditional farmbuildings associated with Poltimore
Farmhouse (q.v), one of the oldest and best-preserved farmhouses in the area.
