approximately 20 metres west of
Knowle Farmhouse

(lV II

Courtyard range of farmbuildings including stables, linhay, cider-house, granary,
stores and pigstys. Mid-late C19. Partly cob on rubble footings, partly volcanic
rubble with dressed volcanic or granite quoins; slate roofs. Three 2-storey ranges
facing into courtyard. The north range comprises stables and harness room, the
west range a linhay, and the south range cider-house, applestore, store and
granary. The granary and stables at the ends of the north and south wings are
stone and built larger and higher than the rest of the buildings which are cob-
walled. The north range includes one cob stable to left and 2 stables in large
stone block, each with a door with hayloft loading door above and window to left.
At right end a small 2 storey harness room projects at right angles into courtyard.
Each stable includes 3 wooden stalls. West range is 13-bay, open fronted Alcock's
Type T1 linhay with timber posts resting on volcanic stone pads. The south range
comprises cob cider house with apple store to right of stone store and granary. An
external flight of granite steps lead to the granary door which is flanked by
mullion-and-transom windows (one glazed). An unglazed 3-light mullion window
serves store below and door is in left gable end. The cider house has a wide
entrance to ground floor with windows to right and above. Apple store access by an
external flight of stone steps to rear and rear of granary are a row of 3 granite
walled pigstys under lean-to roof of corrugated iron. Each has wooden front with
door and iron fittings. Granary and part-floored cider house carried on massive
crossbeams. King-post roofs throughout. A remarkably complete C19 farmyard.
