8/171 Southam Tithe Barn and shelter shed
(formerly listed under Pigeon
House Farmhouse and Tithe Barn)
Tithe barn. Late C14 or early C15. Square-panelled timber framing
now covered with C20 weatherboarding; high random coursed squared
and dressed limestone plinth; artificial stone slate roof.
Rectangular plan with a projecting central porch on the south side;
lean-to extension to the left of the porch; former shelter
shed runs south from the west gable end; granary extension at the
east gable end of the barn. South front: central gabled and
weather-boarded porch; with double plank doors; C20 stone-built
lean-to extensions to the left of the porch with plank doors and a
4-light C20 steel casement. Early plank door towards the east
gable end of the barn; five single-light windows with leaded panes
to the weatherboarded part above, similar windows to the north
front. Trefoil-headed single-light window; stone grain chute and
early plank door within an early pointed arch, possibly reused, to
the lean-to granary at the east gable end. Flat gable end coping
and roll-cross saddle to barn. Eight-bay shelter shed with timber
uprights on pyramidal padstones, openings now blocked with garage
Interior: 7 bays with 8 raised cruck trusses, two now incomplete.
The original truss form appears to have comprised a pair of cruck
blades jointed to a collar beam, with a brace from cruck blade to
soffit of the collar; vertical struts from the soffit of each
cruck blade to floor now removed; secondary collar towards the
apex. Most of the trusses have now been strengthened with the
addition of a tie- beam. Internal raking buttress at the east end.
