6/138 Barn approx. 15m
- north-west of
The Fields


Barn, incorporating substantial remains of open-hall house. Early to
mid-C19 barn incorporating one bay of C14 or C15 open-hall house. Barn:
on east-west axis, a mixture of regularly coursed limestone rubble, red
brick and weatherboarded construction with a slate roof (hipped at west
end) incorporates in its side walls 2 cruck-framed trusses of a medieval
hall aligned north-south. Interior: 2 truncated base cruck trusses
probably representing solar or service bay of open hall; both are
chamfered with arch braces (now missing on northern truss) supporting
cambered tie beam; this has a beam running north-south supported by
post and carved bracket on southern truss but rest of roof structure
(possibly of crown-post type) has been destroyed ; the north face of the
lower tie beam to the southern truss has 8 mortice holes marking the
position of the joists of the former floored bay and on the bottom face
is a further series of mortice holes marking the position of a former
close-studded or plank and muntin screen; to left and right and cut into
the north side of the cruck truss are square-headed doorways with
reverse ogee arches,marking the entrances from the hall into the solar
or service bay. At right-angles to east of northern truss is part of
a cruck blade re-used to support a loft in the C19 barn.
