1/4 Barn at Manor Farm

- II*

Aisled barn. C13, with C16 alterations and C19 replacements and recladding.
Timber-framed; the aisles rebuilt and faced in rubble flint; thatched main
span roof, slated aisles, which extend around the ends of the frame, with
their outer walls divided into bays by plain red brick pilasters. A red brick
diamond-shaped ventilation opening in all but the central bay, which contains
the cart entrance. The interior, though much remodelled, contains substantial
remains of C13 work. At least 8 main posts have 2 trenches for passing
braces, although only one truss, to the left of the entry, seems to be in its
original position. 4 tie-beams have 2 pairs of notched-lap housings for the
ends of the passing braces, which did not extend above tie-beam level. There
are stop-splayed scarfing joints in the arcade plates which have buckled
badly. All the original main posts are rough and irregular in form. The roof
over the main span is original, with housings for a collar to each pair of
rafters, but was remodelled into a queen-post form in the C16. At the same
time, most of the trusses were resited and on the west an end-aisle was added,
possibly replacing an original bay. At the east end there may also have been
shortening, and the aisle there is a C19 addition. prior to the Dissolution
of the Monasteries, the manor to which this barn was attached belonged to the
Benedictine abbey of St. Edmundsbury.
