Linhay at Fenacre Farm


Linhay. Circa early C19; altered later C19. Local stone rubble. Thatched roof re-clad in corrugated-iron, and with gabled ends. Long 7-bay range with open front. 2 storeys. Square piers at front. The cattle shelters have been blocked at the front to form cow houses, but the lofts above are still open-fronted. At the right-hand [east] end a dairy has been added and at the back [north] there is a later single-storey outshut.
INTERIOR: Original roof structure with lapped and pegged collar trusses; the common-rafters set horizontally like purlins, to avoid the need for thatching battens. Some thatch remains at the front.
This is a good and largely complete example of a Devon linhay
