SX 98 NE
2/6 Marsh Barton Farmhouse

- II

2 dwellings, formerly a single farmhouse. Possibly C16, but much altered.
Roughcast cob, on stone footings, with gabled-end and hipped roof. Probably a 3-
room, through-passage house, the lower end to the right of the passage, with a front
parlour wing, 2 rooms in length. 2 storeys.
Front: 3-window range, with 3-light casement windows to first floor, similar
wlndows to hall and service end. Two 3-light windows to each floor of inner face of
parlour wing, with a central doorway with glazed porch. C19 and C20 fenestration
elsewhere. An impressive array of chimney stacks is the buildings most conspicuous
feature: there are 6 in all, all rendered; 3 axial (or almost axial) + 2 end
stacks, and 1 lateral stack to the wing. It is difficult to be certain which of
these stacks are original; that backing onto the passage is entirely C20.
Interior: some roughly chamfered ceiling beams, and a chamfered lintel to hall
fireplace. C18 pegged roof to wing. The house is of considerable historical
interest, as it was the home of the Sokespitch family from the middle of the C12 to
the late C18; they gradually reclaimed the surrounding marshland and have been the
subject of a study by W G Hoskins, Old Devon (1966, reprinted 1971), pp. 121-34.
