8/216 Yarnacott, including barn
attached to west end
Farmhouse with barn attached. Farmhouse probably early C16, remodelled in C17.
Barn added in C18. Farmhouse undergoing alteration at time of survey. (1985).
Farmhouse of roughcast rendered stone and cob. Asbestos slate roof, half-hipped at
right end. Lateral hall stack with offsets. Barn of unrendered cob with brick
dressings and corrugated asbestos roof. Farmhouse 3-room and cross-passage plan
with stairs in cross-passage. The extended lower end, however, may well have been
a shippon and later divided into 2 rooms, the cob partition having once again been
removed. 2 storeys, 4-window range. 2 C19 casements to left side have 8 panes
per light above similar casement to right of 6 panelled door to lower end. Slated
canopy continues over bread oven projection to hall stack and cross-passage doorway
to left with 6-panelled door. C19 2-light hall casement 9 panes per light with
small 4-paned single light window to dairy end. Barn has loft door above 3-plank
Interior: Farmhouse has stop-chamfered ceiling beam and bressumers to each end of
hall. Chamfered beam to part of lower end. 2 raised cruck trusses over lower end
with threaded purlins; the inner truss with mortices to the soffits of the blades
for removed collar, the truss towards gable end formerly with lap-jointed collars.
A roughly hewn pegged truss, possibly early C19 over hall, the remaining trusses
replaced in C20, but section of ridge piece and ridge support reused with signs of
smoke-blackening suggests this was probably originally an open hall house, the
lower end possibly always having been floored over as the cruck trusses are both
