2/294 Linhay approximately 80 metres east of Falkedon Farmhouse (south)

GV II

Linhay. Probably late C17-early C18. Cob on stone rubble footings; thatch roof. Plan and exterior description: originally open-fronted (the tallet/hayloft still is) the linhay faces north. It is built across and terraced into the hillslope. It is 6 bays. The tallet/hayloft is carried on a series of roughly finished crossbeams which, on the front, rest on monolothic granite posts. From the top front end of each crossbeam an oak post rises through the tallet/hayloft curving at the top and lap-jointed onto the outer principal of an A-frame truss with pegged lap-jointed collar. The one exception, at the left end, is a true cruck. This is Alcock's linhay type S2. The roof is gable-ended. At the back, near the centre, there is a hayloft loading hatch with an old, maybe original, oak frame. It could be loaded from the terrace. This, and the barn nearby (q.v.), are now rare examples of still-thatched traditional Devon farmbuildings. This linhay is altogether a particularly well- preserved example.
