12/122 Old Windebrowe and
16.10.79 adjoining barn


Farmhouse and barn, now museum and exhibition area, forming part of an outdoor
centre for the disabled. Probably early C18 with late C18 barn and extensive
late C18 alterations; renovated by the Calvert Trust in 1980. Mixed rubble,
mostly slate boulders and some hand-made bricks, with flush split slate quoins
and small galleting pieces. Graduated greenslate roofs with rendered chimney
stacks. 2 storeys, 3 bays, formerly U-shaped but centre now filled; lower bank
barn to right, of 11 bays with byres underneath. House has 2 C20 doors in plain
openings. Sash windows with glazing bars in plain reveals. Side top-glazed
door within gabled porch. Barn has excavated passage at front, the 2 cart
doorways, flanking a pent extension, reached by slab bridges over the passage.
Floors inside barn are 1980 and on one level, including kitchen and toilet
facilities. Further extension to barn with C20 windows is not of interest.
Listed for its associations with the Calvert family and their literary guests
including Wordsworth, Southey and Coleridge.
