1/28 Barn adjoining Ruggadon
at the west
Barn. C17 origins, re-roofed in the late C19/early C20. Whitewashed plastered stone
rubble: corrugated iron roof, gabled at ends.
Probably originally a threshing barn with a loft, adapted to a cider barn in the C19.
In the late C19/early C20 the building was re-roofed. At present it is lofted at the
right end only, where there is an apple loft and loft entrance at ground level at
the rear. Before the late C20 the floor of the barn at the front was raised above
ground level to allow cider barrels to be loaded directly on to carts. The ground
level has since been raised.
Interior. The feet of the C17 trusses are visible - they were probably jointed crucks
and extend to floor level with the stubs of slightly curved blades at the top. Hand
operated cider press, probably in working order. The apple crusher was powered by a
traction engine, which no longer exists, but the belts and wheels survive.
An unusual survival in the region of a large C17 farmbuilding, forming an impressive
group with the adjacent house which is separately listed.
