2/94 Barn, calf house and linhay
- approximately 3 metres south-east
of Freathingcott Farmhouse
Barn, calf house and linhay. The barn is probably C17 but it was reroofed probably
in the mid C19 and the calf house and linhay were new built in the mid C19. Local
stone rubble with larger roughly-dressed quoins; corrugaged iron roof to barn
(probably thatch formerly), slate to calf house and linhay.
Plan: l-plan building. The long main block is built down a relatively steep
hillslope and faces west. Uphill at the left (north) end is a large double barn
including two sets of opposing full height doorways onto the threshing floors. To
right of this a calf house and byre. Downhill at the right end a 4-bay linhay in a
crosswing projecting forward and facing north into the farmyard.
Exterior: the barn front is dominated by the 2 full height doorways, each flanked
by short projecting midstrey walls and with small hoods. Either end of the front
are secondary doorways, the downhill one gained by a flight of stone steps. Loading
hatch in the left (north) gable-end. Most of the joinery detail throughout these
farmbuildings including the large double barn doors is plain but sturdy C19 work.
To right is the calf house. The left end is flush with the front of the barn and
this calf house contains a full height doorway. To right of it the byre is lower
and it contains 2 round-headed doorways with a ventilation slit between. The
crosswing is an open-fronted 4-bay linhay. The tallet/hayloft crossbeams are fixed
to full height timber posts (Alcock's linhay type T1). The roofs are gable-ended
and step down from section to section.
Interior: includes plain but sturdy C19 carpentry detail including king post truss
These and the other farmbuildings around the farmyard form an exceptionally good
group of traditional farmbuildings serving nearby Freathingcott Farmhouse (q.v). The
visual impact of the whole group is enhanced by their siting on a steep hillslope.
