II


3 ranges of farmbuildings comprising barn range to West returned to
Shippon with loft over to North and wing to East of uncertain use, at
some time used as dwellings. Circa 1840. Stone rubble; slate roof to
Shippon, corrugated asbestos to barn and return arm, the latter
half-hipped, tiled roof to East range.

Plan: 3 ranges forming a planned farmyard with a central dung pit, to
the rear of Wonham Barton Farmhouse (q.v.). The fourth range has been
refronted and is not included in the listing. Access from Farmhouse at
South-East, and former cart entry at South West. The Shippon range,
adjacent to the road, has access to the hay loft at the upper level;
barn range has a threshing loft with loft access from the rear. There
is a very large wheel pit, with underground water access tunnel to west
of the barn. Exterior: Barn range; 2 storeys. Stone steps in internal
angle over segmental-headed opening. large segmental-headed doorway
centre, smaller similar doorway to left. Three loft doorways, largest
to right at head of steps. Return arm has 3 round arched openings below
two segmental-headed doorways Shippon range: 12 storeys, with 9 former
segmental-headed openings (that, far left, now concealed by 2 storey
addition with horizontal boarding) mostly filled with rubble and
multi-pane casements but some with doors. The loft is weatherboarded
with central doors and with access stair at left end; two C20 steel
casements, far right, and two rigid stacks.

East wing: 2 storeys, scattered casements, 2 or 3 light; 4 doors to
semental heads; 3 stacks. Extreme right an early C20 weatherboarded
extension forming throughway to farmhouse.

Interiors: Barn is eight bays, ground floor left is closed off by rubble
wall and retains C19 stable stall including cast iron post. Shippon has
series of numbered king post trusses (not set up in numerical sequence)
and lower level has series of 13 paired cattle stalls with automatic
drinking points. The East wing has very lofty ground floor, and may
have been workshops originally. Floors throughout at upper level have
unusually wide boards, and appear to be those of the original
constructions.

These buildings are an unusually good group, with the farmhouse. They
have been little altered within, and are built against the road at the
north side; this rear, north elevation, is an important aspect of the
group. There is also a complex and sophisticated water supply and
power system which formerly operated the wheel.
