CLYST ST LAWRENCE
ST 00 SW
2/43 Courtyard of farmbuildings
11.11.52 adjoining north of Upton Farmhouse
GV II

Range of farmbuildings. C18 with C19 and C20 alterations. Red cob on stone rubble
footings, some C20 brick rebuilding; thatch roof.
Plan: 3 sides of the farm courtyard are enclosed. The south side of courtyard is
separated from the farmhouse forecourt by a tall plastered cob wall. It extends
eastwards from the north end of the house front. The east side is a milking parlour
converted from a linhay. The north side is a threshing barn with a full height
carriageway between the barn and milking parlour.
Exterior: the barn has central opposing full height doorways on the threshing
floor. The plank double doors onto the farm courtyard are C19 with flaps. The
front is now mostly obscured by C20 calf houses. The front of the milking parlour
is C20 and circa 1 metre in front of the original timber-framed linhay front which
has been mostly destroyed.
Interior: the barn and milking parlour roofs are made up of A-frame trusses. Those
over the carriageway and milking parlour have pegged lap-jointed collars and those
over the barn have spiked lap-jointed collars.
These traditional farm buildings form an attractive group with the adjacent Upton
farmhouse (q.v) and are unusual since they still have their thatch roofs.
