Abstract:
Westcott Barton is an important example of a Devon farmstead with late medieval to early post-medieval origins. The farmhouse originates as a cross-passage house probably dating from the 16th century, consisting of a hall, with an inner room to the west and a cross-passage to the east. The service end to the east of the cross-passage is probably part of the original building, with a pegged jointed cruck roof, which is almost identical to that exposed above the first floor rooms over the hall and inner room. Although the service end may be slightly later, the byre and hayloft is certainly contemporary with it. The recently exposed roof trusses in the first floor rooms above the hall and inner room are heavily smoke blackened. However, the farmhouse was most likely a partially open rather than a fully open hall. Seventeenth century additions include the addition of a chimney in the north-east corner of the hall, the first floor and northern stair turret. Later alterations include the construction of the brick bread oven and smoking chamber at the northern end of the cross-passage; the late 18th/ early 19th century western extension; the 19th century dairy, and the raising of the eaves by several courses in the late 19th century. The south range byre and linhay probably date from the 17th century, whilst the north range linhay barn attached to the east of the farmhouse is thought to be 17th to 18th century. The farmbuildings have undergone numerous alterations, additions and demolitions.
