Listing Text


Barn c. 50 metres north east of
5/104 Euxton House Farmhouse
19.7.1983 (Formerly listed as Cruck Barn at
- II Euxton House Farm)

Barn, probably first half C16 with C18 extension to south.
Cruck framed with cladding of hand made brick, roof of corrugated sheet;
the extension is of brick with stone dressings, and has a slate roof.
5 bays separated by 3 full cruck trusses, each with cambered tie beam,
collar, and collar-yoke. Tie beam extends to outer wall, but spurs
above and parallel to them carry the principal rafters to the apex.
Although the cruck blades appear to have been trenched, the rafters now
carry the trenched, overlapping single purlins, wind-braced. Sawn-off
tops of wall posts and numerous mortices in blades and wall plates
indicate the former framing of the walls. The extension has stone quoins
and doorways and two round pitch-holes similarly dressed. (Dendochronologically
dated 1515-1530).
