Listing Text

TL 96 SE
1/10 Barn, 40m north-west of
- Rookery Farmhouse
Barn, late C16 or early C17 and in two stages: a 3-bay barn at the east end
with an aisle on the north side, and a higher 5-bay extension, unaisled.
Timber-framed and weatherboarded. The lower section has a glazed pantiled
roof, the higher section has asbestos sheeting; both were formerly thatched.
Boarded barn doors at centre bay of north wall. The east section has depleted
framing, but retains storey posts, wall-plates and most of the clasped-purlin
roof. One open truss employs reversed assembly, suggesting an early
alteration. Good complete framing in higher section: close-studding with
tension stud-bracing and middle-rail. One open truss has arch-bracing, the
others have C19 bolted knees. Windbraced clasped purlin roof. Nearly all
studs and many rafters are reused from a medieval building. The east section
was in the process of conversion to a dwelling at date of survey.
