3/144 Barn approximately 1.5 metres
north of Ford Farmhouse
Threshing barn with horse engine house. Late C17-early C18. Partly plastered
granite stone rubble with parts of cob; slate roof, formerly thatch.
Plan and exterior threshing barn on a north-south axis containing opposing doorways
to the threshing floor set south of centre. The east doorway (to the farm
courtyard) is smaller than the other but neither are full height and there is a
roughly central hayloft loading hatch on the east side. Roof is hipped to south and
gable-ended to north. A C19 horse engine house projects from the north end of the
west side. It projects a short distance at right angles and has a semi-hexagonal
end. It is open-sided although there are low rubble walls each side and the end is
supported on a series of monolithic granite posts. It contains a beam of enormous
scantling but no machinery remains. Its roof is hipped.
Interior: barn is open to the roof. It still has its threshing floor of oak planks
on top of granite sets. 5-bay roof of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed
