5/39 Barn with gate piers and
adjoining building approx 50 m
east of Golden Manor House
II* (formerly listed as out buildings
at Golden Manor)

Barn (probably part of monastic complex) C15-C16 with some circa C19 rebuilding and
granite ashlar gate piers (probably C18) and adjoining building to east. Shale
rubble with granite dressings. C20 corrugated asbestos gable roof over. L-shaped
with quadrant newel stair turret in angle. 2 storeys, 8 bays (each bay space
between floor beams). West front is much repaired and rebuilt but is essentially
late medieval. Door opening to left is probably C19 but the 2 buttresses with set-
offs. and granite weatherings are original. 2 granite slit windows to first floor
are probably original but reset. Later opening over buttress. Granite arched
opening with label between buttresses is complete but probably inserted. Dated
stone 1879 probably indicates a repair date but possible the rebuilding of the
south gable end which incorporates many reused fragments including C16 granite arch
over door (with later keystone) and diabolo stopped cut down jambs. Relieving arch
over. Window to left over plinth is blocked and has granite 4 centred arch reused
the wrong way up so as to form a pointed arch over reused granite jambs. Carved
triangular stone over. 1st floor has similar blocked opening to left and sundial
to right both with relieving arches over. Slit window in gable may be reused from
west wall. Quoins are chamfered and stopped with reused granite laughing lion
gargoyle over right upper stop. Quoins in north-east corner of slightly set back
wing are similarly chamfered but south-east corner has random granite quoins and is
probably original. Door in south wall of wing has C19 slightly arched granite
keyed lintel over and narrow centrally placed window to first floor Granite coped
east gable end has half round granite ashlar gate pier with original granite slit
window to gable. Stair turret has similar slit window. Back wall of main range is
thinner beyond stair turret to north and has slightly arched openings (probably
rebuilt C19). A reused narrow granite opening survives to ground floor of north
gable wall probably rebuilt at the same time. Adjoining half round gate pier to
right ie. east of entrance, is building with 3 flat headed granite chamfered
window openings with internal 4 centred brick arches. 2 blocked door openings with
similar brick arches inside to east and west walls and 2 pointed brick
arches/recesses inside north-west corner (This part is known as the Chapel).
Interior of barn contains 5 chamfered and stopped ceiling beams insitu with further
2 inverted at north end suggesting complete rebuild from this point. Few if any
original joists survive but notches indicate their original positions. Softwood
beam and softwood lintel in wall at south and provide further evidence of
rebuilding. Moulded granite doorframe with semicircular head at entrance to
granite treaded stair.
