Listing Text

2/232 Cockingford Farmhouse
23.8.55 including shippon at south-west
GV end (formerly listed as Cockingford
Mill and Millhouse)
Farmhouse, formerly a mill and mill house. Probably late C17 or C18, with
additions. Granite rubble. Slated roof. Rendered chimneystack on left-hand gable;
granite ashlar stack on ridge, off-centre to left. Single-depth plan. 2 storeys
with single-storey lean-tos at front and rear. 3 windows wide; C20 wood casements.
Ground storey has 2 old plank doors, 1 between the 2 windows, the other at right-
hand end. At extreme right-hand end is a pent-roofed projection. At left-hand end,
set back a little, is a shippon with loft over. This has 3 doorways in ground
storey, the left-hand 2 with granite slabs as lintels, the right-hand one wider with
a shallow segmental arch having well-cut voussoirs. In centre of upper storey is an
old plank loft door with wrought-iron strap-hinges. Against right-hand gable-wall
is an iron water-wheel with wooden spokes and slats; it is moulded with the
inscription WILLCOCKS & SON, BUCKFASTLEIGH. The sluice survives, with granite
rubble retaining wall, and part of the leat running north-east across the hillside.
The house has group value with Cockingford Bridge and Cockingford Cottage, which are
listed in the parish of Buckland-in-the-Moor.
