8/10 'Tithe Barn' 50 metres
south-west of Monk


Barn, perhaps C17 reconstructed in C18 or early Cl9. Stone with slate roof,
4 bays. Side walls have a vertical pair of ventilation slits to each bay and
threshing doors in the third bay from the south-west. North-west door now
blocked. North-east gable end has 2 tiers of 3 ventilation slits and
rectangular opening in the gable. South-west end has large C20 opening.
Interior divided by 3 cruck trusses, the blades springing from stone corbels
1.5m above the floor. Each truss has a collar and carries 2 purlins on each
roof slope. Replaced ridge piece. Evidence of removed tie-beams and re-set
collars indicates that the cruck frame is perhaps re-used from an earlier

An interesting vernacular building type and a rare survival in this part of
the country.
