Barn to the south-east of
Street Farmhouse
(formerly listed as Barn
at Street Farm)


Barn, formerly a house, or more probably, a guildhall. Late C13/early C16.
Timber-framed; part rendered, part weatherboarded; clay pantiles. 3 bays, with an entry and threshing-floor to the middle bay; a later lean-to along the
rear. A C20 floor has been inserted at one end, but the remainder of the
building seems always to have been open to the roof. The whole frame, of very
high quality, is exposed inside: heavy close-studding with a middle rail; ogee
bracing in the south end wall, the braces halved to the outer surface of the
studs. There are housings for diamond-mullioned windows in the soffit of the
wallplates, but the whole interior is now studded. The bays are divided by 2
very fine open trusses with cambered tie-beams supported by solid plank-like
arched braces which rest on small moulded and embattled capitals on the main
posts. Below the capitals, small square shafts run down the face of the
posts. An empty mortice on the top of each tie-beam indicates that there were
formerly crown-posts, but the present roof is a late C19 replacement. A
cambered tie-beam, similar, but smaller, than those in the other trusses,
combined with later studding, indicates that the wall at the north end is
later, and that the building originally extended for at least a further bay.
