SO 99 SE
4/119 Barn approximately 50
metres west of Oak House

Agricultural building, now workshop and store. C17. Timber-framed with
brick in fill. Comprises a south range and a wing at right angles extending
to the north which appears to be of the same build. The east gable wall of
the south range has exposed framing in square panels, tension braces, and a
truss with tie-beam, two collars, and side purlins. The principal posts have
redundant mortices which suggest that this range once extended further to the
east. This shortening must have happened before the adjacent barn (qv) was
built to the east. The east wall of the rear wing has had some of its stud-
work removed and has two wide modern workshop doors. The west wall of the
front range and the north wall of the rear wing both have tie-beam trusses
with two collars with V-struts above the upper collar. Interior of the
front range is undivided and open to the roof and is of two bays. The open
truss has raking struts. One straight brace remains from the tie-beam to
a principal post. The wind-braces are slightly curved. Interior of rear
wing not accessible at time of survey.
