6/269 Barn immediately to the east of
- East Quither Farmhouse including
adjoining leat aqueduct pier
Barn with undershot water wheel in pit on side. Barn circa early C18, wheel probably
late C19. Stone rubble barn with corrugated asbestos roof hipped at ends. The wheel
has a metal rim and timber spokes. The barn has 1 large entrance on the front at the
right under a timber lintel, second entrance on front at left under a corrugated iron
canopy. The addition of the large water wheel has involved blocking 2 entrances on
the east side. The wheel has "Langdon of Launceston" on the rim. A tall square
stone pier, which supported the leat aqueduct, adjoins the barn.
Interior Pegged tie beam and collar trusses with 2-tiers of original purlins intact.
Gearing from the wheel survives. It seems likely that the wheel was used as a power
source for the manganese mining industry at Quither in the C19.
