8/120 Barn approx. 20m south of
- Lower House Farmhouse
Barn, now cowhouse. C14 or C15 remodelled mid-to late C19 with later
alterations. Cruck-framed with outer walls largely rebuilt in C19 and C20
brick; slate roof. Single storey. Framing: thick vertical posts and
wall-plate probably medieval but light horizontal members and long straight
tension brace to front are C19. Three doorways to front, wide to right.
Interior. Single through-purlin roof in 3 bays with brick to gable ends
and 2 true cruck trusses, right with straight collar and yoke but left with
mortices only. Right truss also has mortices to inner faces of blades
but no mortices on underside of collar to suggest former presence of arch
bracing. Original spur from rear blade of left truss to wall-plate.
The trusses are neither chamfered nor smoke-blackened, suggesting that the
building has always been agricultural. Inserted loft to left bay. Lower
House Farmhouse is not included in this list.
