3/48 Barn (formerly old kitchen)
approximatley 60 metres to north-
north-west of The Garden House
Barn, originally kitchen to vicarage. Circa early C16. Stone rubble walls. Gable
ended thatched roof, hipped over stair projection.
This building was the kitchen to a larger complex, mostly demolished, which
documentary evidence suggests was the former vicarage. It consisted of a large room
on the ground floor with a massive fireplace at the gable end and a newel stair on
the front wall in a projection leading to the room above. The slit windows at the
gable end suggest that the building may have been converted to a barn and certainly
its use degenerated to a barn from the late C18 onwards. At some subsequent stage
the floor was removed from the 1st floor room.
1 storey originally 2. Asymmetrical front with large stair projection to right of
centre with curved front wall and straight side walls and has hollow chamfered
granite framed light on front wall. To the right of the stair projection on 1st
floor is similar light. To the left on ground floor is wide doorway with C20 plank
doors, probably an enlargement of the original. 2 slit openings at right-hand gable
end obscured externally by foliage.
Interior: Massive fireplace in left-hand gable end occupies almost full width of
room and has chamfered dressed granite arch now supported at the centre by a later
stone pier. 2 stone ovens at left-hand side. Square-headed granite doorway with
double chamfer leads to stone newel stairs. C20 king post roof structure.
