4/258 Barn and shippon approximately
- 25m south of Forder Farmhouse
Barn and shippon. C17. Large blocks of roughly-dressed granite (almost ashlar) with
some granite stone rubble patching; corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch).
Plan and description: threshing barn with adjoining shippon facing north-east. The
barn has central opposing doorways to the threshing floor, the front one full height
for double doors, the rear one smaller. The shippon is on the right (north-west)
end, its roof continuous with that of the barn. It contains a doorway with hayloft
loading hatch directly over and a window to the right. Granite rubble leanto sheds
have been built in front of the barn, the left one once open-fronted and its roof
supported by monolithic granite posts. The main roof is gable-ended. Hayloft beams
in both shippon and barn are roughly-finished and waney in places. The roof still
contains some original A-frame trusses of large scantling and with pegged lap-jointed
collars but those towards the left end are C20 replacements.
