4/3 Cow House approximately 30 metres
- north-east of Batworthy Farmhouse


Cow house, former barn. Probably C16 barn with several subsequent alterations,
rearranged and converted to a cowhouse in the late C19. Original work of massive
blocks of granite ashlar, later patching and alterations of granite stone rubble;
corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch).
Plan: cow house containing 3 stalls facing south-west. The right (south-eastern)
stall is an addition to the original build and this shows more obviously to the rear.
The original building was a threshing barn which then had nearly central opposing
doors onto the threshing floor.
Exterior: the front has 3 doors irregularly disposed, all with hayloft loading
hatches directly above. The central doorway and hayloft is partly blocking the
remains of the original barn doorway. The left one cuts through the ashlar work.
The right hand doorway is on the extension, its left side using the end corner of the
original barn. Between this door and the central doorway are 2 small unglazed
windows. To right of the right doorway the hayloft was open-fronted but is now clad
with corrugated iron. On the rear wall there is an inserted doorway but in the
centre of the original part is the blocked barn doorway. It was made of large slabs
of dressed granite. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior has plain late C19 carpentry detail in general. However the roof contains
various A-frame trusses with lap-jointed collars. The latest are made of probably
C20 machine-cut timber with bolted collars. The earliest are those towards the left
(north-western) end of the original barn which may be C17 having cambered collars
halved and pegged to the principals.
