SD 73 NW
2/70 Barn at Portfield Farm

Aisled barn, c.1600. Sandstone rubble with slate roof. East wall has wide
entrance with quoined reveals and timber lintel. To the left are 2 worn
chamfered one-light windows which have a later window with plain reveals
between them. Under the eaves are breathers. At the left is a blocked
doorway. To the right of the entrance are 2 windows with plain reveals and
a blocked one-light chamfered window. The left-hand gable wall has 2
doorways into the aisles and a 1st floor pitching hole, all with plain
reveals. The right-hand gable wall has a blocked double-chamfered window
under the apex, 2 C19 windows on the 1st floor and 3 on the ground floor.
At the left is a door with plain reveals, further right a blocked doorway
with plain stone surround. Interior of 5 main bays. Trusses have raking
queen struts and and tie beams braced to aisle posts. The aisle plates are
also braced to the posts. Aisle ties and principals run from the posts to
the outer walls. Between the main bays are intermediate aisle posts with
their own aisle ties and principals, but no tie beams or principals
spanning the nave. The northern truss has been replaced by or encased in a
later brick wall containing a flue for a 1st floor fireplace. At the
northern end, where the barn is lofted, the outer ends of some of the
aisle ties can be examined. These terminate at short wall posts with
curved angle braces. Their size, together with the lack of any jowling or
evidence for jointing with a wallplate, suggests that they are
contemporary with the present stone walling and are not evidence for
earlier timber walls.
