- Old Barn Farmhouse


Cartshed. Probably C18. Framed construction with vertical weatherboarding on
the south side; peg-tile roof.

Plan: 4-bay cartshed on a west-east axis, open at both ends although
redundant mortises suggest that the east end may have been partly boarded

almost to ground level, as a catslide to the outshut. Below the half hip of
the east end a section of horizontal weatherboarding includes paired loft
doors opening into the roofspace.

The cartshed is part of a farmstead group associated with the Old Farm Tea

A nice example of a small vernacular agricultural building of the region.
