4/106 Agricultural store approximately
- 20 metres south of Easton Barton
Agricultural store. Probably C16, partly rebuilt in C19. Front of neat mudstone
and volcanic trap rubble, rear of partly plastered cob on rubble footings;
corrugated iron roof (formerly thatched). Block faces north into courtyard to rear
of Easton Barton (q.v.) Single room plan with small opposed doors in long walls and
C20 garage door on left (east) end. Right end terraced into hillslope with ground
level at first floor level with doorway there. 2 storeys. 2-window front of plain
shuttered 2-light windows under low segmental-headed arches. Central plank door
with simple strap hinges. Roof hipped to left and gable-ended to right.
Interior: some of Cross-beams are wellfinished with chamfered soffits, others are
rough and waney from different builds. 5-bay roof was much repaired in C19 but
retains much of C16 side-pegged jointed cruck truss roof. Some smoke-blackening has
led to speculation that this block may have been late medieval house or detached
kitchen but blackening is heavily concentrated at apex suggesting that they were
salvaged from or survived in a burning building.
