The following buildings shall be added:-

SS 64 NE
1544-/3/10003 FARM BUILDINGS AT
(that part in Martinhoe C.P.)
See also under Lynton C.P.
Part of a large group of farmbuildings. C18, remodelled and
extended in mid C19. Rubble with slate roofs.
PLAN: A complex group, arranged around 2 courtyards on the
side adjoining the farmhouse (qv), and with 2 further yards on
the far side (to the SW); the complex is divided by the
stream, which is impounded to the SW and taken by pipe-line to
serve the water-wheel in the centre of the group.
The buildings in Martinhoe parish are of the C18 and of one
storey, but with part of a 2-storey section of the later barns
range running along the "spine" of the waterway. The buildings
form 3 sides of a yard, open at the farmhouse end.
EXTERIOR: That furthest from the house is an open-fronted
cowhouse, with 5 segmental arches to narrow stone voussoirs on
plain flush piers; the rear is plain except for one doorway.
Returning at right angles to this range is a stable and
pigsties with, at the outer corner, a small living unit with a
large square external stack to a coped gable.
The courtyard front has two stable doors and 2 single lights
at the left-hand end, with 3 low square doors to the right.
The end gable is linked to the gable-end of the farmhouse (qv)
by a rubble wall with gate. The opposite range has one large
plank doorway with plank overlight, a second doorway and two
2-light openings.
Beyond the cowhouse is a low-lying stockyard, enclosed by a
rubble wall, and enclosed to the SE by the barn range, with 2
small 2-light openings at the eaves and 3 shallow lights and a
wide doorway to ground level.
INTERIOR: The high barn has floor joists, but the boards have
been removed. A 300mm diameter iron pipe runs just below upper
floor level, and discharges to the cast-iron overshot
waterwheel, which is approx 4m in diameter and 1.4m wide; a
Barnstaple has been identified, and a few of the wooden -blades
have survived (see also Lynton C.P.). The living unit,
probably for accommodation of temporary workers, is a square
room with large open fireplace to stone voussoirs.
Collar-rafter roofs.
Part of a remarkable planned group of mostly mid 19th century
farmbuildings. The farmhouse (qv), lies to the NE.
