Listing Text


5/1 Barn 20 metres north of
High Meadow House


Barn, C18, extended later C18. Rubble, cut quoins and dressings to later C18
extension, heather thatch. Rectangular barn of 6 bays with stone cross wall
between 2nd and 3rd bays, other bays divided by cruck trusses. South wall has
3 doors with timber lintels and a fourth in the later C18 extension, with
alternating jambs. Left gable has 9 ventilation slits in 3 tiers. Rear wall has
2 doors, that to right with C18 iron fittings. Interior shows crude cruck trusses
in central section and a truss of slightly better quality in west section, all
with collars extended beyond the cruck blades to support purlins; and ridge-
piece carried between the overlapped ends of the blades. The rafters are uncut
branches. Similar timbers form fodder racks in the central section, which
retains its flagged floor and central drain. The eastern extension has 2 rough
principal-rafter trusses, with collar beams and a loft floor.

Perhaps a unique survival of a once-common vernacular building type, remaining
virtually unaltered.
