SX 69 NE SOUTH TAWTON

1/168 Pig house approximately 2 metres north of Powlesland Farmhouse

GV II

Pighouse, former bakehouse/cottage. Late C17 but apparently earlier origins. Earliest part is granite stone-rubble, rest is cob on stone rubble footings; disused cob stack; corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch. Plan: 2-room plan building facing south-east. The right room is the earlier part. In the late C17 a second room added with gable-end stack, the wall over the earlier part raised and the whole building new-roofed. Formerly a bakehouse/cottage it has since been converted to agricultural use with the first floor now used as a hayloft. 2 storeys. Exterior: the difference between the cob and stone rubble builds shows clearly. Each side of the central straight join is a doorway each flanked by a C20 window. The left doorway is an oak C15 2-centred arch with chamfered surround. Maybe this has been reset here from the train farmhouse. Hayloft loading hatch at right end. Roof is gable-ended. Interior has plain carpentry detail. The large fireplace has a plain oak lintel, the crossbeams have unstopped soffit chamfers and roof of originally uncollared straight principal trusses.
