The entry shall be amended to read;

7/6 Bumblebee Farm
(formerly listed as Barn at East
Street Farm)

Former barn, now house. Probable late C16 date but converted in 1980s. Timber
framed barn clad in weatherboarding on C20 ragstone and brick plinth with
half-hipped renewed tile roof. Former west midstrey with hipped gable now has 5
light casement inserted at 1st floor level with C20 hipped weatherboarded porch on
ragstone footings. 3 hipped dormers with double mullioned windows. Ground floor
has 2 and 3 light mullioned casements. Rear elevation has 4 hipped dormers 4
mullioned casements, 1 half-glased door and patio door to left hand side. The
former lean to addition to north was removed at the time of conversion. Aisled barn
of 5 bays with jowled posts, queen post roof, mid rail and curved tension braces.
Although many of the up right posts have new bases there is an inserted flow and a
fireplace made up of reused timbers, the main posts are original to their upper
parts and the tie beams, queenposts, purlins and wall plates with tension braces are
original. The joists are edge halved scarfs with bridled abutments which (according
to Cecil Hewitt) died out c.1650.
