Old farmhouse with integral barn at East Barton, Exeter Road, Tiverton - Mid Devon

The building dates from C16 and the house has not been occupied in liviing memory. It is a very rare and probably unique example, being an evolved form of the longhouse which retains considerable evidence of its form and function including important early features such as jointed cruck roof trusses, two internal jetties and substantial floor beams. The building is largely water tight, but there is slow structural failure of internal elements and deterioration of some external cob walls. A previous scheme to convert to holiday cottages lapsed and there are no current proposals for its reuse.
