Abstract:
Archaeological building recording was undertaken by Oakford Archaeology in October 2012 during building work at Barne House, Christow, Devon . The site lies at the centre of the village of Christow. Barne House is a Grade II Listed House with early 19th century origins. The building consists of a three bay symmetrical front, double depth plan with a central corridor and service rooms to the rear. Building recording was undertaken before works associated with the removal of the dividing wall between the current kitchen and conservatory. The subsequent demolition of the wall was also monitored. The position and context of the wall in relation to the site boundary suggests that this represents the infilling of an oddly-shaped area left over between the house and the curving site boundary. As such it seems most likely to be either contemporary with, or later than the house. The wall contained no dateable features, but the manner of its construction, without separate dressings, using lime mortar, and with timber lacing set into the wall to provide fixings for the door frame, are not suggestive of great antiquity. The house is of a classic late 18th-19th century appearance with a simple 2-storey double fronted elevation facing south-west, sash windows with six over six glass panes and no sash horns, and panelled reveals to a central doorway. A spine wall divides the building into a rough 'double-pile' plan, but under a single roof. It is likely that the outbuilding is either contemporary with or later than the late 18th-19th century building.
