BRIXHAM

SX85NE ELBERRY LANE, Broadsands
1946-1/1/35 (South West side)
Farm buildings to NE & NW of Elberry
Farmhouse including walls, gates and
piers

GV II

Farm buildings. Mid C19. Devonian limestone rubble. Slated
roofs. Appears to be a planned layout north-west of farmhouse,
consisting of 2 rectangular enclosed courtyards with a bank
barn between them. Front courtyard has lofted cattle sheds and
stables; round house behind barn. Rear courtyard has 2 ranges
of single-storeyed buildings, probably calf houses. 1 and 2
storeys. Simple, well-preserved buildings, the openings with
arches of stone voussoirs. The 2 yards have separate entrances
from Elberry Lane, both with semicircular gate piers, although
in the rear yard the left pier has been removed; here,
however, the original gate with spear-head uprights survives.
The rear yard has a second gate opposite the first, in the
south-west wall; this also has semicircular piers. The
farmstead, including its farmhouse (qv) and cart shed (qv) is
an interesting example of a planned layout not often found in
Devon, particularly in so good a state of preservation. It
occupies an important position on a public path close to
Broadsands Beach and is clearly visible from Broadsands Road.
