COLATON RALEIGH CHURCH ROAD
SY 08 NE
Colaton Raleigh
Barn adjoining to
3/46 north-east of
No 1 Drupes Cottages
GV II
the description shall be amended to read:
Barn, former house. Probably early/mid C17, refurbished in the late
C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings, parts rebuilt with
exposed stone rubble (the large local river cobbles) and some brick;
thatch roof. Barn facing onto the road to the south-west. There are
opposing large double doors onto the former threshing floor and at the
right (south-eastern) end there is a through-passage between the barn
and No 1 Drupes Cottages. Left of the passage are the late C19 double
doors, each split into 2 flaps, to the former threshing floor. Left
of this is a plank door flanked by unglazed windows with plain frames
and shutters. The roof is lower than No 1 Drupes Cottages and is
gable-ended. The- end wall is of exposed rubble and the top part is
weather-boarded. North elevation has timber lintels over 3 doorways,
that to centre retaining C17 chamfered doorframe and old plank door
with strap hinges. Interior noted as having 3-bay side-pegged jointed-
cruck roof with slip tenons and trenched purlins. East gable has C17
four-light wood-mullioned window. It was once a cider house and still
contains the apple crusher.
The barn forms a group with No 1 Drupes Cottages and Rose Cottage (qv)
and Nos 1 and 2 Baileys Cottages (qv).

3/46 Barn adjoining to north-east of
- No.1 Drupes Cottages
GV II
Barn, former house. Probably C16, refurbished in the late C19. Plastered cob on
stone rubble footings, parts rebuilt with exposed stone rubble (the large local
river cobbles) and some brick; thatch roof.
Barn facing onto the road to the south-west. There are opposing large double doors
onto the former threshing floor and at the right (south-eastern) end there is a
through-passage between the barn and No.1 Drupes Cottages. Left of the passage are
the late C19 double doors, each split into 2 flaps, to the former threshing floor.
Left of this is a plank door flanked by unglazed windows with plain frames and
shutters. The roof is lower than No.1 Drupe Cottages and is gable-ended. The end
wall is of exposed rubble and the top part is weather-boarded.
Interior is open from the ground to the roof. Although a proper interior inspection
was not possible at the time of the survey the roof includes at least 2 side-pegged
jointed cruck roof trusses and they appear to be smoke-blackened which suggests that
on the C16 this was a hall-house with an open hearth fire. Alternatively it had an
industrial function at some time. It also was once a cider house and still contains
the apple crusher.
The barn forms a group with No.1 Drupes Cottages and Rose Cottage (q.v.) and Nos. 1
and 2 Baileys Cottages (q.v.).
