Linhay approximately 20 metres west of Widhayes Farmhouse


Linhay. Mid C17. Local stone rubble; corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch. 11-
bay open-fronted linhay on a roughly north-south axis facing onto the farm courtyard
to east. The crossbeams carrying the tallet/hayloft floor are tusk-tenoned into
full height front posts standing on stone pads, (Alcock's linhay Type Tl). The oak
beams and posts are chamfered with scroll stops. The posts have a kind of hammer
beam arrangement to carry the outer principals of the A-frame truss roof with pegged
lap-jointed collars. Roof is hipped each end.
The high quality finish of this linhay distinguishes it from most other contemporary
in Devon. It also forms a group with Widhayes Farmhouse (q.v) and the other
farmbuildings here.
