Cider house. Probably mid C17. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings, one end
rebuilt in local stone rubble with large dressed granite quoins; corrugated iron
roof (formerly thatch).
Plan and exterior description: the building faces south. The wide doorway to right
now contains a C20 door. Left of this and external flight of stone steps rise to a
door to the apple loft. The roof is half-hipped to left and hipped to right. At
the back are the remains of a C19 horse engine house; its roof carried on massive
timber posts some of which have been replaced by granite posts.
Interior: 3-bay ceiling, the right bay open to the roof. The left crossbeam is
massive. It is soffit-chamfered and supported by posts with jowled heads set in the
cob walls. The right crossbeam is soffit-chamfered with step stops. 3-bay roof of
C17 A-frame trusses, one with its original collar halved into the principals.
This cider house forms part of a group with the important farmhouse, Drascombe
Barton (q.v), its garden walls (q.v) and Butterwell (q.v).
