2/40 Perry's Cider Mill


Barn, now partly a cider mill, part a museum. Cl6 origins. Ham stone rubble; thatched roof hipped at west end, gabled
at east. Roadside elevation has a 3-light timber casement and a pair of full-height doors, flanked by later raked
buttresses; extension against east gable with hipped roof and small door under eaves: against west end another building
with corrugated asbestos cement roof: lean-to against rear. Inside, the main roof of 3 bays, double collar trusses,
smoke blackened, asymmetrical with 3 rows of purlins on north slope, 2 to south; the east end appears to contain the
remains of a post and frame construction. Along part of the north side fragments of timber framing, including on early
jointed cruck - this may have been in external wall originally. The original purpose of this building not certain - the
heavy smoke blackening suggests that it may have seen use as smithy. The museum contains cidermaking and other farm
