3/70 Barn and linhay approximately 35
- metres east of Poltimore Farmhouse
Barn and linhay. The barn is late C16 - early C17, the linhay is late C19. Local
stone and flint rubble, corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: the barn is built across and is terraced into the hillslope facing north-west
onto the farmyard. In the C19 this was being used as the work horse stables with
hayloft. The late C19 linhay was built in front of the left end of the barn. It
projects 1 bay at right angles, the next bay at 45° degrees then 6 bays face onto
the farmyard to the west.
Exterior: the barn has a wide full height central doorway which is weather boarded
and contains the stable door with a window across the full width of the former
doorway above. The roof is half-hipped both ends. The left (north-east) end
contains the hayloft loading hatch off the terrace. The linhays were formerly open-
fronted but now are clad with C20 weatherboarding containing an irregular
disposition of doorways.
Interior: the barn has roughly-finished crossbeams of large scantling carrying the
hayloft floor. The 3-bay roof is carried on side-pegged jointed cruck trusses. The
linhay is Alcock's type T1 with the tallet/hayloft crossbeams tenoned into full
height timber posts which support the outer principals of A-frame roof trusses.
This barn and linhay along with the other farmbuildings form a good and attractive
group of traditional farmbuildings associated with Poltimore Farmhouse (q.v), one of
the oldest and best-preserved farmhouses in the area.
