5/79 Linhay and calf house 4 metres
south-west of West Fursham
Linhay and calf house. Probably C18, maybe late C17; small extension of 1839
according to date inscription. Mostly cob on stone rubble footings, C19 extension
of stone rubble, some patching of C20 concrete blocks; corrugated iron roof
Plan and exterior description: long range facing onto former farmyard to north-west.
The main section to right is an 8-bay linhay, still mostly open-fronted.
Immediately left of this and separated by cob crosswall is a cartshed (an open bay)
then the calf house with a front doorway. At the left end the C19 extension
provides another cartshed with a full height doorway. The linhay is Alcock's linhay
type T1. The full height oak posts rest on granite pads. Large roughly-finished
crossbeams are notched into and tusk-tenoned through the posts. The top of the
posts clasp the outer principals of A-frame roof trusses with pegged and spiked lap-
jointed collars. The oak lintel of the calf house doorway is inscribed 1839. Roof
is gable-ended to right and hipped to left.
