13/12 Barn to Home Farm, north-west of
Downham Hall, and stable in same
range to east

Aisled barn, probably C17th. Limestone rubble with sandstone dressings
and stone slate roof. North wall has wide entrance with long-and-short
jambs and timber lintel. At each end are shippon doors with chamfered
surrounds. To the right of the left-hand door is a window with plain
stone surround. Above, under a gablet, is a pitching hole with lintel
and sill of C19th type. To the right of the wide entrance is a later
lean-to. Adjoining to the left, with a higher roof level, is a building
formerly used as a stable. To the left it has a 2-light rebated and
chamfered mullioned window. To the right of the central door is a window
with chamfered surround. Above the door, under a gablet, is a pitching
hole with chamfered stone surround. The central door has a chamfered stone
surround, as does a 2nd door at the right. Interior. The barn is of
7 bays with narrow aisles, about one metre wide. The aisle posts rest on
stone bases and are braced to the tie beams and to the aisle plates, some
of the braces being straight and some curved. There are no mortises for
aisle ties. The trusses have light collars and raking queen struts. The
purlins and rafters are now of softwood and the trusses have been repaired
with softwood. The upper part of truss no.2 (from the east) has been
entirely replaced, as has the western truss. At each end of the barn are
later shippons with softwood stalls.
