3/184 Barn approximately 18 metres
- south of Burnthouse Farmhouse
Threshing barn with adjoining byre. C18. Cob on stone rubble footings, patched a
little with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
Long block facing onto farm courtyard to the north-east. It is built down a slope;
byre on the uphill left end, barn downhill to right. The barn has central opposing
doors to the threshing floor. The byre has a brick-lined doorway as if it were
reduced in width in the C19. It contains a C19 door with a contemporary loading
hatch directly above and unglazed window to right. The barn has large full height
doorways on each side, both flanked by short midstrey walls. They contain C19
double plank doors, each split into 2 flaps. The roof is hipped each end and the
eaves are carried down a short distance as a hood over the barn doorway.
Interior. The 2 parts are separated by a cob crosswall. The byre has 2 large oak
crossbeams with roughly-made soffit chamfers supporting the hayloft. Barn is open
to the roof. It is 7 bays overall, 3 to the byre and 4 to the barn. The trusses
are A frames on tie beams with spiked lap-jointed collars and X-apexes.
This is a rare example of a traditional Devon farmbuilding which is still thatched.
