HELSTON

SW62NW BREAGE ROAD 631-1/1/10 Bank barn and attached cart shed at 25/07/79 Methleigh Farm (Formerly Listed as: BREAGE ROAD Farmyard buildings including watermill at Methleigh)

GV II

Large bank barn. Mid C19. Killas and granite rubble with granite dressings; grouted scantle slate hipped roof. L-shaped plan with mill leat and wheel pit of mill (qv) in space between rear of barn and bank, part of a planned farmyard. 2 storeys; 2x2-window fronts to inner angles. Most windows with diagonally set wooden stanchions. Left-hand range has symmetrical arrangement of windows over doorways flanking a central loading doorway over doorway and similar loading doorway over doorway on right (with threshing winnowing doorway at rear). Left of this range is a double cartshed with loft and rounded wall and leat wall at rear left. The other front is symmetrical with central loading doorway (with rear doorway opposite mill doorway) and 2 doorways to ground floor. C20 boarded doors with original hinges. INTERIOR: floors of barn partly removed; original nailed collar trusses. Cartshed has 2 reused C17 chamfered hardwood joists probably from the farmhouse (qv). This building is part of a planned group at Methleigh ranged around a cobbled yard with central dung pit (now infilled). The water supply system at Methleigh, serving mill, farm buildings, house and gardens, is a considerable feat of planning and engineering and is probably the most complex of its kind in Cornwall.
