4/137 Stables at Old Middlecott
Stables. Probably C17 and C18. Granite stone rubble with large dressed quoins;
corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch).
Plan: stable block backing onto the road and facing south-east into the farm
courtyard. The left (north-eastern) cell is on a slightly different axis and,
although the evidence is not conclusive, may be the earliest part. It is attached
at right angles to the upper end of a milking parlour (q.v.) which was the original
Exterior: the longer left-hand section of the front contains a central doorway
flanked by small unglazed windows and has a hayloft loading hatch. The right end
section has a doorway with loading hatch directly above, left of a single small
unglazed window. Roof is gable-ended. Rear wall includes a hayloft loading hatch
and some blocked slit windows.
Interior has plain but sturdy carpentry detail including a roof of A-frame trusses
with pegged lap-jointed collars. The collars over the right section are cambered.
These stables form part of an attractive group of traditional Dartmoor farm buildings
1 of which, the milking parlour (q.v.), was the original farmhouse.
