3/78 Courtyard of farmbuilding
- approximately 8 metres south-
west of Waye Barton

Courtyard of farmbuildings, now all used as stables. Probably late C18-early C19,
parts may be C17. Granite stone rubble with large dressed quoins; corrugated iron
roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: 3 ranges of farmbuildings around a long and narrow farmyard which includes a
dung pit. All face into the courtyard and are now used as stables. Apart from the
narrow linhay at the south-east end their former function is not certain. The north-
east range was probably stables from the beginning. The south-west range was
probably cow byres originally. All have haylofts over.
Exterior: The long south-west range on the uphill side is propped by a number of
broad raking stone rubble buttresses. 4 of the 5 compartments have doorways with
small windows to right. The right end compartment also has a doorway but it has 1
slit window to left and 3 to right. There are more slit windows to the hayloft, 3
each end with 2 hayloft loading hatches between. The roof is gable-ended. The
south-eastern range is a 3 1/2 bay linhay connecting the 2 other ranges. Only the
ground floor is now open-fronted. The tallet/hayloft is clad with corrugated iron.
Granite posts support the crossbeams. Posts are set into the top of the beams to
support A-frame trusses (Alcock's type S2). The north-eastern range has doorways
either end with a pair of small windows between and a hayloft loading hatch left of
centre. Roof is gable-ended. The joinery of the doors and windows is plain
throughout and most of the doors are C20 replacements.
Interior. The carpentry detail is plain and sturdy. The roofs are A-frame trusses
with pegged or spiked lap-jointed collars.
The dungpit along the centre of the yard is lined with granite and terraced into the
slope. It is still used.
