MEM22248 - Splat Barn Cottage, Porlock (Building)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
The building is shown as 'Splat Barn' on the 1889 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map.  It is also shown on the 1903 map.  Slat means allotment, so possibly some connection with the Manor Strip system. The house is marked as a building of historic interest on the 6 inch map of 1929.  Splatt Barn Cottage is notable for its large shouldered end stack. The thatched house with attached barn probably dates to the 18th Century.  This structure appears to be present on the 1841 Porlock Tithe map.
