ST GILES SS 52 SE IN THE WOOD 4/198 Way Barton 4.10.60 GV II

Farmhouse. Early C18, modernised in the mid - late C19, built on the site of an ancient barton. Plastered stone rubble and cob, maybe with some brick; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; slate roof, formerly thatched. Plan: 4-room plan farmhouse facing north-east. At the left (south-east) end is a parlour with a gable-end stack. Next to it is an entrance hall with an axial stack backing onto the dining room which has a rear lateral stack. At the right (north- west) end is the kitchen, set back very slightly from the main front, and with a gable-end stack. There is an axial passage to rear of the entrance hall and parlour and, to rear of this part, a rear block mostly taken up by the main stair but also including former buttery and dairy. Service stair rises from rear of the kitchen. The house is early C18 with subsequent modernisations. There is no evidence of any earlier structure here. 2 storeys with disused attics in the roofspace. Exterior: Regular but not symmetrical 3:1-window front of C19 12-pane sashes, those in the centre right (dining room) bay included in tripartite sashes. The front doorway is left of centre and it contains a C20 part-glazed panelled door and overlight. Roof is gable-ended. A medieval carved stone is set in the front wall approximately 1.5m above ground level and approximately 1m from the left end. It is carved with 3 human heads in pyramid fashion, a male head at the apex and below are 2 ladies' heads wearing wimples. The stone appears to be late C13 - early C14 in date. It is presumed to be reset but its provenance is unknown. Interior: There is little exposed carpentry detail although axial joists of heavy scantling are exposed in the parlour and some plaster has been stripped off the partitions this end of the house revealing brick-nogged timber-framed walls. Also the dining room fireplace is exposed. It is large, built of stone rubble with a brick segmental arch over and a brick relieving arch above it. These features are all early C18 and there is a great deal of contemporary joinery and some other detail around the house. The entrance hall has a moulded plaster cornice. Open well stair has closed string, square newel posts and fat stick balusters. Good cupboard on the stair has fielded panel doors, the upper panels making a nowy head. The first floor includes some fielded 2-panel doors and some similar cupboard doors. Roof was not available for inspection at time of this survey but is said to be tie-beam trusses with pegged collars, also probably early C18. C19 cream oven in the dining room. Way Barton was the home of the La Way Family in the early C13. It was acquired by the Pollard family in 1242. In 1640 it was owned by Lewis Wellington. Source: Devon SMR.
