10/95 East Bowden or Higher Halstock
Unoccupied farmhouse. Probably early 018 possibly with earlier origins. Plastered
stone rubble walls. Gable ended corrugated iron roof. Axial granite ashlar stack
with tapering cap.
Plan appears to be of longhouse derivative with shippon at left end which has no
internal access from the adjoining hall/kitchen beyond which is a small unheated
parlour or dairy at the right end. C19 outshot added at the rear of the shippon and
C20 leanto at the front of the parlour or dairy. Direct entry into central
hall/kitchen which is heated by an axial fireplace.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front of circa early C20 2-light casements.
Shippon to the left has a doorway to its right and a 1st floor loft opening to the
left. C20 single storey flat roofed addition to the front of right-hand end of
house which has plank door. At rear is C19 outbuilding extension behind shippon.
Interior: Probably C18 roof structure of straight principals with lapped and pegged
collars re-inforced with nails. The principal room has a fairly rough granite
flamed fireplace with lightly chamfered lintel.
This is an interesting C18 continuation and adaption of a very traditional Dartmoor
plan form and is in an isolated setting on high moorland.
