1/215 Barn and linhay approximately 7
metres west of Langstone Farmhouse


Barn and linhay. C17 barn and late C17 - early C18 linhay. Large grade granite
stone rubble tending to rough courses and massive roughly-shaped quoins; corrugated
iron roof (formerly thatch).
Plan and description: Range of farmbuildings built in a line facing north-east and
built down a hillslope and also partly terraced into it to rear. At the left
(downhill) end there is a threshing barn with a byre and hayloft over on its right
end. The centre of the barn section has opposing nearly full height double doors to
the threshing floors and it is open to the roof. To right there is a byre doorway
with hayloft loading hatch directly over with a narrow slit window to right. A
granite crosswall divides barn and byre and the roof is made up of oak A-frame
trusses of large scantling with pegged lap-jointed collars. There is some evidence
that the truss principals were once lap-jointed onto vertical posts buried in the
side walls. Barn roof is half-hipped to left and gable-ended to right. Uphill to
right, and set back a short distance from the barn front is a 4-bay linhay.
Originally it was open-fronted. The roughly-finished crossbeams are supported on
monolithic granite posts and, from their tops, posts rise through the the tallet
(hayloft) and have curving heads which are lap-jointed to the bases of the outer
principles of A-frame roof trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars (Alcocks linhay
type S2). In the C19 the central 2 ground floor bays were filled with rubble and
the tallet front is weatherbounded including a roughly central loading hatch. All
the joinery, including that of the barn is C19.
This barn and linhay form a picturesque group with the other listed farmbuildings
associated with Langston Farmhouse (north) (q.v) and Langstone Farmhouse (south).
