History

Part of the mid to later C19 development and expansion at Buckland Farm, though variations in masonry on main gable end frontage suggest present building was a remodelling of an earlier one, involving raising the roof substantially.

The farmhouse is C16-C17 in origin, remodelled later, particularly mid to later C19 as part of a model farm development. Previously called Wern y Berllan and appears as such and T- shaped on Tithe map of 1841, together with a farm range mainly to rear which pre-dates the expansion. OS map 1889 shows development complete. Buckland House later Hall nearby was first recorded as a Jacobean mansion c 1600 and was rebuilt for Roderick Gwynne c 1775. From mid C19 until its sale in 1935 Buckland was the property of the Gwynne Holford family. The house was rebuilt following a fire in 1898.

Exterior

Gable end frontage facing into courtyard has a single wide elliptical arched ground floor doorway with arched double boarded doors; above a large rectangular boarded loft opening. On the far side the building is completely overgrown, the overshot millwheel still in situ.

Interior

Retains machinery for processing root feedstuff at ground level with loft above.
