Tithe Barn. C15 granite rubble walls with granite dressings. Gable ended scantle
slate roof. Long rectangular plan of 20 bays with central threshing floor which has
opposing porches on each side.
Single storey. Regular front with 9 buttresses granite ashlar to either side of tall
gabled porch which has a similar buttress at either side and a large 4 centred
granite arched doorway with double-chamfered arch at the front. The buttresses to
either side of porch are close-set with ventilation slits set alternately between
buttresses. To left and right of porch is smaller 4-centred arched granite doorway,
the left-hand of which is now blocked. To the left of the porch the barn has a
chamfered plinth where the ground slopes Similar rear elevation with central porch
and buttresses; at either end on rear wall is an inserted doorway with stone arch.
Interior: chamfered granite arches to front and rear porches. Original roof of 20
bays survives complete although probably restored somewhat of raised crucks with
arch-braced collars, morticed apex and threaded purlins.
As one of the few remaining monastic tithe barns in Devon this building is a very
important survival.
