Linhay about 45 metres
north west of Pinbrook
Linhay. Late C17/early C18 with a C20 addition on the south side. Framed
construction with a corrugated iron roof, replacing thatch. Plan: The linhay
is of 6 bays, open-fronted on both sides. The western most bay is narrower
than the others and the eastern most bay has been truncated. Some of the bays
have been divided by modern concrete block divisions, but this has interfered
little with the original structure. The open front on the south-west side
gave cattle access to the stream. Exterior: The posts on the north-east side
sit on Heavitree stone pads, the south-west side pads have been replaced with
concrete. Interior: The loft tie beams are chamfered with runout stops and
most of the original joists and wide oak floorboards to the loft survive.
The loft floor has been removed in the third bay from the left. Roof: A-frame
trusses, each with an X-apex, the ridge diagonally-set. The principal rafters
slotted into the tops of the posts and held with pegs. The slightly-cambered
collars are lap-jointed to the principals and fixed with pegs augmented with
nails. The purlins rest on the backs of the principal rafters and are held
in place against wedges knocked into the principals but projecting from them.
The original rafters survive throughout, fixed to the ridge with long project-
ing pegs. The linhay is important as an unusual example of a type of agricul-
tural building confined to the south west.
