6/202 Barn to north-west of Manor
10.1.55 (previously listed as
Tithe Barn)


Large barn with attached stable at east end. C15, possibly
earlier; late C17 stable. Very large coursed and squared
limestone; timber framing; coursed rubble to stable; stone slate
roof (clay pantile to north slope). Off-centre south porch to 6-
bay barn; stable with loft. South side: stone base walls with
chamfered plinth and buttresses; gabled porch with plank barn doors
and outshut to right; weatherboarded porch gable and upper part of
barn walls; low opening in wall to left of porch with plank doors;
plain stone side wall to stable. East end: barn end is half-hipped
with small gablet, gabled stable with 2 stable doors having timber
lintels; central loft door over with timber lintels; 3 rows of
pigeon holes in gable apex. North side: weatherboarded above
buttressed stone base walls as to south; central porch with raised
sprocketted roof; attached shelter sheds are not of special
interest. West end: weatherboarded half-hipped gable end with
gablet above buttressed stone base wall.
Interior has 7 raised cruck trusses with very high cambered collars
and arched bracing; 2 rows of purlins and ogee-curved wind bracing;
close studded end walls; small framing along sides. Internal span
of approximately 8.2m across feet of crucks. Rafters and framing
are original: C15 work is largely intact with little evidence of
repair or replacement. C19 iron tie-rods sag and appear
unnecessary. A lofty and elegant structure. Important barn and
one of the best in the county. Possibly built as Tithe Barn for
Gloucester Abbey. Manor Farmhouse stands to south east (q.v.).
