1/77 Barn and cart-shed approximately
- 11 metres south-east of Rashleigh
Barn and cart-shed. Probably early C17, remodelled in C19. C17 work of cob on
rubble footings, C19 work of local stone rubble, some of it facing C17 cob;
corrugated asbestos roof (probably thatch originally).
Gable-ended range facing farmyard to west. Cartshed to left (north) is open to
rear. Barn to right (south) was originally a cider house with apple loft.
Irregular front. The cartshed has large full height carriageway on its right end
next to the barn. The left end of the barn breaks forward and through its end has
been knocked another full height doorway. To right of this projection is an
unglazed C19 timber window. On right end return external stone steps to former
apple loft. The rear of the cartshed is open-front with 2 circular-section full
height stone rubble piers supporting the roof.
Interior: cartshed is open to 3-bay roof which comprises probably C17 side-pegged
jointed crucks. In C19 this roof was much altered. In front wall the cruck posts
were cut off towards the top and to rear were removed completely and replaced by
the present stone piers. The collars and purlins have also been replaced. The
barn/former cider house is part-floored. The apple loft carried on a series of
large untidily-finished crossbeams and finishes with the original framed and cob-
nogged partition. The 3-bay roof is carried on probably C17 side-pegged jointed
cruck collars with replacement collars.
