- Farmbuildings adjoining West
Forde Farmhouse to north

Complex of contemporary farmbuildings. Early C19. Cob on rubble footings, some
plastered; slate and corrugated iron roofs. 4 ranges of farmbuildings around farm
courtyard. The east range, adjoining north end of West Forde Farmhouse (q.v.) is a
2-storey implement store; the north range a linhay; the west range a large barn
over a shippon and the south range houses stables with haylofts over. The implement
store has doors at each end and a plain unglazed window between with another above.
The larger left-hand door has a loading hatch over. The linhay is 11 bays, Alocks
Type T1. The left 3 bays have been converted to a granary and most of the ground
floor front has been filled with C20 blockwork. The central bay is a carriageway and
open to the roof. The barn is terraced into a slope with a shippon in the basement.
It rises above a granary to the right and the engine house to left, its roof half-
hipped each end. The volcanic rubble basement has 6 segmental-headed arches although
3 in the middle are now blocked. A flight of stone steps lead up to the large barn
doorway to the threshing floor. The barn is cob walled with 2 small windows, 1 over
the other, at left end. The stables range is volcanic rubble to first floor level
and plastered cob above. The ground floor level comprises 4 doors each with a window
to the left. The left end stable is larger than the others. There are 3 loading
hatches above and the gable-ended roof is slated. All roofs have A-frame trusses
with pegged lap-jointed collars and the 6 trusses in the barn sit on tie beams. The
plastered interior of the barn has several graffitis, the oldest dated 1838.
