SX7467 BUCKFAST ROAD, Buckfast 1011-1/5/31 Buckfast Abbey Farmhouse 10/01/51 (Formerly Listed as: BUCKFAST ROAD, Buckfast Abbey Farmhouse & adj outhouse to NW, wall to W & garden wall to SW)

GV II

Wing added to the abbey guest house (qv). Late C14/early C15 with later alterations, in course of major refurbishment and reconstruction at time of survey (1992). Local grey limestone rubble; 1990s slate roof, gabled at ends with very steep pitch (based on archaeological evidence); stack with stone rubble shaft. Plan: the wing projects at right-angles to the guest house, to its south east. It consisted of probable store or service rooms on the ground floor with a heated first-floor 7-bay hall reached by external steps on the south side. Probably converted into a farmhouse after the Dissolution. EXTERIOR: 2-window south front with projecting lateral stack to right of centre with C20 reconstructed arched doorway to right. Double flight of reconstructed stairs to first-floor entrance on south side, 2 first floor C20 reconstructed windows. North side has reconstructed openings: doorway to ground-floor right with windows alongside to left; 3 reconstructed first-floor windows. C20 timber garderobe on west end, the position of an earlier garderobe. INTERIOR: 8 reconstructed arch braced trusses of 1991.
