GV II

Formerly known as: Berry's Forge Mills and South Gate BUCKFAST ROAD Buckfast. Gateway to Buckfast Abbey and range adjoining to west. C12 in origin with a long, complex, structural and functional history. In process of conversion to abbey retreat at time of survey (1992). Local stone rubble; slate roof. Plan: the gateway, which has been raised over the course of time to accommodate changed ground levels, incorporated medieval jambs to a C19 arch. The adjoining block has developed from a monastic single-storey almshouse with various changes in form and function, including domestic and industrial uses. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic. The south side (facing the road) has a segmental-headed gateway at the right end; 3 ground-floor windows; 3 first-floor windows and 3 second-floor windows; 5 shallow roof gables. Evidence of patching and blocked openings. North side has one ground-floor window; one first-floor window and 6 second-floor windows; 4 shallow roof gables, similar evidence of various phases of building. INTERIOR: not inspected. Brown's work (not yet published) on this building combines the documentary and archaeological evidence.
