MODBURY A379 SX 65 SW A379 (off north side) 1/53 Farmbuildings at Edmeston


Large group of farmbuildings around 2 courtyards. Mostly C19, but may contain some earlier fabric. Rubble walls, slate roofs, all gabled. Immediately west of the farmhouse (qv) is a V-shaped range of 2-storey buildings set into the ground slope on the west side; the south front has two lofty segmental headed doors at the head of a lateral flight of 14 stone steps carried on an arch, also a large granite water cistern recieving water from a spring outlet. From here also a tunnel runs partly under the buildings and partly under a raiaed part on the west side. In the courtyard frontage are two 3-light glazed openings and a third with shutters above two openings with cambered heads. On the right a barn on two levels which adjoins a lofty 3-storey barn entered from the west at high level, and from the yard at lowest level; this has 2 glazed lights above 2 first floor loading doors which are over 2 elliptical-headed openings with paired wooden doors. To the right is a lower 2-storey range with one opening having a marked granitelintel and 3 (formerly 4) elliptical-headed openings with doors: above were similar openings, now blocked and with vents. Lower wing returns, right with an early door, vented over. The far side of this courtyard is entered by a covered cartway, raised in the 1980s. Interiors partly inspected, roofs where seen either C19 queen post or simple construction. The 3-storey barn and adjacent range may have been used for wool storage and drying. The whole is a very fine C19 group, in generally unchanged condition externally, making with the farmhouse an important historical assembly.
