6/1 Barton Farmhouse
House, previously divided into 3 cottages, now converted into one house. Circa early
C19 extended in late C19. Stone rubble. Rag slate roof with gable end on right and
hipped end on left. Projecting stone rubble end stack on right and stone rubble shaft
to axial stack to left of centre.
Plan: Original plan uncertain. The main range of the house on right was possibly a
pair of one-room plan cottages with central entrances and rooms to left and right
heated by end stacks. Extended on left-hand side probably in later C19 with further
one-room plan cottage, sharing chimney-stack with the original left-hand cottage.
The house is now converted into a single dwelling of 3-room plan.
Exterior: Two storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front. The earlier range on right has
a symmetrical 2-window front with pair of entrances in lean-to porch in centre, the
right hand entrance now blocked. Flanked by two PVC windows on ground floor with two
above, all in original openings. To left C20 window on ground floor to left with C20
door to right and C20 window above lighting first floor.
Interior: Not inspected.
There are a series of similar early C19 cottages in isolated positions on the moors
in Bolventor. Much of the land was enclosed at this date by farmers leasing the land
from Squire Rodd of Trebartha on 99-year leases.
Axford, E.C. Bodmin Moor, 1975.
