6/24 Barn and adjoining cowhouse or
stable at Babdown Farm
Large barn and adjoining cowhouse or stables to west. Dated 1847,
built for Robert Stayner Holford, possibly by Lewis Vulliamy.
Coursed stone, stone slate roof. Barn has twin gabled cart entries
facing in to yard with brick gables inset with single stone giving
initials "RSH" to left and date to right, both with timber lintels
and renewed double timber doors. Roof sweeps down to each side of
entries and between in catslide, with stable door and 2 long slit
vents to outer side and central 3-bay animal shelter with
cylindrical rubble stone piers dividing the bays. Opposed similar
but projecting cart entries on rear with wooden lean-to between,
and cambered-head pitch hole with slit vents to gable ends.
Single-storey L-shape cowhouse or stable block has 7 doorways
mostly with stable doors and alternating on slightly irregular
pattern with shallow wide openings, some glazed. Interiors not
accessible. Part of a complete and largely unaltered contemporary
farmyard complex, probably one of several built in the area by
Vulliamy, linked by walls (q.v.) and with stable block and
cowhouses (q.v.) to north east originally linked by gateway of
which piers only survive, gate missing.
