2/6 Hacking Barn
- II*
Cruck barn, c.1600. Walls of sandstone rubble and modern timber boarding,
replacing timber framing. Asbestos sheet roof. Towards the left of the
west wall is a chamfered doorway with Tudor-arched head. The wide barn
entrance on this side has been blocked, but the one in the east wall
remains. Inside there are 6 cruck trusses of heavy scantling. Each blade
has, or had, 2 spurs tying it to a wall post, a collar, and a yoke below
the ridge. Blocking pieces on the backs of the blades carry the purlins.
The northern cruck truss has had a tie beam removed. It originally had
wattle-and-daub infill, some of which remains above the collar. The upper
part of the east wall retains some of its timber framing. The wall plate
and the surviving studs show that each bay had one central stud and a
cross rail. Straight braces rise from the posts and the studs to the wall
plate. Mortises in the soffit of the wall plate in the 3rd bay from the
south show that the wide barn door was in this bay. Part of the western
wall plate also surviving shows that there was a similar door in this
wall. At the north end are 2 roof trusses with collars and chamfered and
stopped tie beams. The barn is described, with plan, section and partial
elevation, in an RCHM report dated July 1977.
