2/295 Barn approximately 85 metres
east of Falkedon Farmhouse (south)


Barn. Probably late C17-early C18. Cob on stone rubble footings; thatch roof.
Plan and exterior description: threshing barn built on a north-south axis. Opposing
doorways in the centre of each long wall. Both are flanked by short projecting
midstrey walls and have solid doorframes. The western doorway is really full height
and contains double doors but the eastern one is smaller. Both contain probably C19
plank doors. The western doorway is now recessed behind secondary lean-to store
sheds and the thatch of the main roof is carried down continuously over them. The
main roof is gabled to north and half-hipped to south. The barn is open to the roof
which is carried on a series of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars.
This barn, and the nearby linhay (q.v.) are now rare examples of still-thatched
traditional Devon farmbuildings.
