Wheelhouse, Newfarm
This would have housed a horse wheel for providing mechanical power for the farm before the advent of steam engines.
Horse Gin House
Horse gin houses date from the late 18th or early 19th century and housed a wheel or gin which was turned by a horse walking around in a circle. A belt from the wheel would have been fed into the adjacent barn to provide power for machinery such as a threshing machine.
