3/62 Farmbuilding group
to north of
Christon Bank

Planned farmbuildings. Second quarter of C19 with later C19 additions.
Squared rubble with tooled-and-margined quoins and dressings; Welsh slate
roofs. Plan: L-shaped 2 storey barn/byre with a longer L-shaped range
joining its south-east corner; end part of this is cartshed/granary. Four
1-storey wings runs south; the two left ones form a U-shaped yard with the
first building; the others run forward from the second building.

Elevations to main yard: Single-storey west range shows 2 segmental arches
at left end, doorway and small window. North range shows 2 segmental arches
with blocked windows above, and returned gable to left (above roof of west
range) with white brick arched panel containing pigeon openings. East range
has 2 doorways.

Elevations to small yards: Western yard shows inserted sliding doors in north
range and 2 segmental arches in each side range. Central yard shows 2
segmental arches, with part-slatted windows above, in north range; and late
C19 three-bay open cattle shed on east, with cast-iron columns on concrete
bases. Eastern yard shows 2 segmental arches, with 6-pane casement and part-
slatted window above, on north, and similar 3-bay cattle shed on west.

East-facing cartshed/granary shows 6-bay segmental arcade, with 4 part-slatted
windows above, and part-slatted granary window in south end.

All windows have alternating-block surrounds and slightly-projecting sills.
All roofs hipped, apart from dovecote gable.

Attached asbestos-roofed shed to north is not of interest.
