15/12 Unoccupied longhouse approximately
- 30 metres north of Sherberton
- Farmhouse
II

Unoccupied longhouse not in agricultural use. Probably ncorporates some C16 fabric.
Extended in C18 or C19 and considerably altered. Granite rubble walls. Hipped
corrugated sheeting roof.
Plan: now much altered but its original form and development can be deduced. The
door at the centre originally led into a through-passage with hall and probably inner
room to the left and shippon to the right. The hall has an axial fireplace backing
onto the passage. Probably in the C18 the house was extended at the higher end by 1
or 2 rooms with a new entrance made into the former inner room. It may also have
had it shippon extended in the C18 or C19. The house became unoccupied in the early
C20.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with either C19 or early C20
casements or corrugated perspex. Probably C18 leanto stone rubble open-fronted
porch towards left-hand end. Plank door to former passage to right of centre.
Interior: large granite-framed fireplace to hall. Completely reroofed in C20.
