Details

THROWLEIGH SX 69 SE 1/215 Barn and linhay approximately 7 metres west of Langstone Farmhouse (south)

G V II

Barn and linhay. C17 barn and late C17 - early C18 linhay. Large grade granite stone rubble tending to rough courses and massive roughly-shaped quoins; corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch). Plan and description: Range of farmbuildings built in a line facing north-east and built down a hillslope and also partly terraced into it to rear. At the left (downhill) end there is a threshing barn with a byre and hayloft over on its right end. The centre of the barn section has opposing nearly full height double doors to the threshing floors and it is open to the roof. To right there is a byre doorway with hayloft loading hatch directly over with a narrow slit window to right. A granite crosswall divides barn and byre and the roof is made up of oak A-frame trusses of large scantling with pegged lap-jointed collars. There is some evidence that the truss principals were once lap-jointed onto vertical posts buried in the side walls. Barn roof is half-hipped to left and gable-ended to right. Uphill to right, and set back a short distance from the barn front is a 4-bay linhay. Originally it was open-fronted. The roughly-finished crossbeams are supported on monolithic granite posts and, from their tops, posts rise through the the tallet (hayloft) and have curving heads which are lap-jointed to the bases of the outer principles of A-frame roof trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars (Alcocks linhay type S2). In the C19 the central 2 ground floor bays were filled with rubble and the tallet front is weatherbounded including a roughly central loading hatch. All the joinery, including that of the barn is C19. This barn and linhay form a picturesque group with the other listed farmbuildings associated with Langston Farmhouse (north) (q.v) and Langstone Farmhouse (south).
