12/68 Farm buildings complex - approximately 40 metres north- north-west of Stone Farmhouse

GV II

Complex of farm buildings which are said to comprise saw mill and carpenter's shop, steam engine house, threshing barn, hay/straw barn and shippon. Dated 1856. Local stone rubble walls with granite quoins and dressings. Gable-ended corrugated iron roof. These buildings were designed as an integral unit. According to the farmer the left-hand buildings had a saw mill on the ground floor (the pit has since been filled in) with a carpenter's shop above. Adjoining to its right was the engine house which housed the steam engine at the rear and an adjoining chimney at the back. Beyond this was the threshing barn to the far side of which was a hay or straw barn which had a cattle shelter on the ground floor. To the rear of this was a row of shippons. The range is situated facing a farmyard at the back of Stone Farmhous (q.v). 2 storeys apart from the engine house and shippons which are single storey. The principal front of the buildings face the rear of the farmhouse with their gable ends of varying height. To the left is the saw mill/carpenters shop which has 2 identical sized large openings, one above the other. To the right is the lower engine house which has a wide entrance with a narrower doorway to its right. The adjoining threshing barn has a wide central cart entrance with flanking tall window openings. Datestone of 1856 above. There is a slightly awkward joint with the hay/straw barn to its right which has a single large central opening. The farm buildings continue in a row on to the rear of this barn as shippons. Interior: Original fittings and machinery have been removed. The buildings form part of a relatively unaltered C19 estate farm and there are few other steam engine houses surviving in Devon.
