9/135 Barn and attached outbuilding
approx. 30m NW of Tansor Lodge
Barn and attached outbuilding.
DATE: Probably late C18.
MATERIALS: Squared coursed limestone with corrugated asbestos roofs.
PLAN: Originally single-unit barn and attached outbuilding, which is likely to have been a stable and gig house with hayloft or granary over, linked by range with lower eaves level, probably former cartshed.
FACADE: Single-storey barn, outbuilding to right has loft over. Ashlar gable parapets. The westernmost building, the former stable and gig house, faces Tansor Lodge and has a sliding door to the right, the width of the original gig entrance, a wide door with overlight to centre left and small boarded loft windows over. There is a lean-to to right which shelters a loft door which can be seen from the farmyard to the rear. Here there is another doorway and a window again with loft openings over.The barn has various door and louvred or boarded window openings on both sides under wood lintels, some altered C19. The link has a stone wall facing Tansor Lodge and the front to the farmyard is late C20.
INTERIOR: Inside the stable there is a curved curved wooden lintel to the gig house doorway and a large chamfered bridging beam supports the loft floor. There is a pegged roof structure with staggered butt purlins. The barn has a 5-bay C19 roof with staggered butt purlins and large tie beams, and the link has the original late C18 pegged roof with butt purlins. The rafters have been replaced later.
SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE.
This is a series of late C18 farm buildings; a stable/gig house, barn and a linking building which was probably a cart shed. They form a significant group with the contemporary, listed, former farmhouse, and even the alterations in the mid C19 also reflect the upgrading of the house in the same period. The walling of the buildings remains substantially complete and the stable/gig house has most of its original openings and also the floor and roof structure internally. The barn is a sizeable building (5 bays) and even the link building retains one stone wall and its main original roof timbers. These buildings continue to fulfil the criteria for listing and should remain on the list at grade II.
