ST GILES
SS 52 SE IN THE WOOD
4/200 Barn approximately 15 metres south-
- east of Way Barton

GV II

Barn. C16, enlarged in the C17 or C18, reroofed in the C20. Original part is local
stone rubble laid to courses, enlarged in cob on stone rubble footings; corrugated
asbestos roof.
Plan: Threshing barn, facing north-west, with opposing tall double doors onto the
threshing floor. The original barn was enlarged each end in the C17 or C18.
Exterior: The entrance bays breaks forward very slightly. The doorways are not full
height. Both still have their original C16 oak doorframes; large shoulder-headed
arches with chamfered surrounds. Both contain double 2-leaf doors. The front doors
are C19 but the back doors are very old, parts probably as old as the C17 with
coverstrips.
Interior is open to the roof of early C20 A-frame trusses.
It is very rare for a Devon barn to still retain a C16 oak doorframe but 2 original
shoulder-headed arch doorways are probably unique.
