5/11 3 farmbuildings round a yard
- immediately north of Wadhayes

3 farmbuildings. C17, C18 and probably C19. The 2 buildings closer to the house are
stone rubble, one with a corrugated asbestos roof, the other with a slate roof.
Threshing barn constructed of cob on stone rubble footings with a slate roof, half-
hipped at ends.
Plan: U plan, immediately north of the farmhouse. The Southernmost building is C17
and forms a narrow service yard to the rear of the farmhouse. An C18 cob threshing
barn is parallel to the C17 building: this has opposed threshing doors. The 2
buildings are linked by a third building, possibly C19, at right angles to the east.
Exterior: The C17 farmbuilding has 3 doorways on the south side with access from the
service yard behind the house. The east gable end has a brick-dressed loft doorway
with a probably C19 timber door flanked by 2 small rectangular loft windows with
wooden frames. The threshing barn has a large threshing doorway on the south side
with stone and cob cheeks. The building between has a large loft opening in the
Interior: The Southernmost building has a probably early C17 jointed cruck roof
construction with very high collars mortised into the principals. The threshing barn
has an C18 'A' frame roof construction. Interior of third building not inspected.
Important to the immediate setting of the farmhouse. The Southermost building is
especially interesting for the survival of the C17 roof structure and may be
contemporary with a programme of modernizing the house in 1621. It forms a integral
part of the farmhouse complex.
