4/175 Linhays adjoinLng south-west of West Week Farmhouse

GV II

Linhays. Late C17 - early C18. Granite stone rubble with some cob; corrugated iron roof. Plan and description: 1-shaped block of linhays facing onto a farm courtyard at the lower (southern) end of West Week farmhouse (q.v). The northern side is formed by the shippon end of the farmhouse. The western and southern sides are lined by these linhays facing into the courtyard. The western wing is 5 bays with a central full freight carriageway bay. The southern side is 9 bays the left 3 bays breaking forward from the rest. The whole lot is of similar construction. They were originally open-fronted. Monolithic granite posts carry the roughly-finished crossbeams and set, into the top of each crossbeam, are oak posts rising through the tallet,(Alcock's linhay type S2). These posts have curving heads lap-jointed onto the bases of A-frame trusses with lap-jointed collars. All these lap joints are well-pegged but large blacksmith made iron nails are included (they may be secondary). The roofs, where they do not abut others, are nipped. Probably in the C19 the lower (cow byre) sections were blocked with granite stone rubble. These are a well-preserved range of linhays from- the period and are associated with the important Dartmoor farmhouse of West Week (q.v).
