- Ciderhouse and linhay
approximately 25 metres south-
west of Whelmstone Barton


Ciderhouse and linhays. C17, refurbished in C19. Cob on rubble footings, small
part; replaced with C20 concrete blocks; corrugated iron roofs. L-shaped building
around south-east and south-west sides of farmyard. Third (north-west) side
occupied by barn (q.v.). Longer south-west side (facing north-west into courtyard)
comprises ciderhouse flanked by linhays and another linhay at right angles facing
north-east. Cob ciderhouse has large central doorway flanked by C19 3-light
unglazed windows with plain square-section mullions and internal shutters. First
floor central loading hatch to apple store.. Inside is part-floored with apple loft
carried on close-set series of heavy roughly-finished and often waney crossbeams.
Late Cl9 cider press with cast iron screw in open section at right end. Roof of
Cl9 machine-sawn A-frame trusses. Second loading hatch in left end. To left is a
3-bay linhay with hayloft floor removed. Replacement C19 nailed tie and cross beam
roof. To right is a 7-bay linhay with replacement C19 roof of scissor braced
trusses which do not relate to posts but rest on a wall plate. The crosswing is a
5-bay linhay with part of its rear wall replaced by C20 concrete blocks, the
hayloft floor removed but with probably original roof of A-frame trusses with
pegged lap-jointed collars. Roofs are hipped each end. All linhays are Alcock's
Type T1 with roughly-finished full heigt posts resting on granite pads and
similarly-finished crossbeams, all of massive scantling.
