- Bank Barn about 50 metres
east of Chipley Manor


Bank barn with shippon underneath, built into the hillside east of the farmhouse,
on the opposite side of the road. Erected 1827 (datestone). Stone rubble with
dressings of squared stone. Low-pitched slated roof with clay ridge-tiles, hipped
at each end. 2 storeys. East front has in ground storey 4 wide segmental-arched
openings to shippon. Above are 2 doorways to barn, placed to correspond roughly
with the outer piers between the openings below. Just under the eaves, centrally
placed, is a tablet of oolitic limestone carved with the inscription: 'This barn
was built at the expense of Mr W French in the year of 1827. H Bickley, mason. J
Candish, carpenter'. The west front, where the barn floor is at ground level, has
2 wide segmental-arched openings, the left-hand opening cut away a little at the
base. The right-hand opening is flanked by 2 windows filled with concrete block.
On the right-hand side of it is the remnant of a horse-engine house; the curved
right-hand wall survives, bat the left-hand wall has been removed and replaced with
a pier of concrete block, while the roof has been replaced with a corrugated
asbestos lean-to. On the left side of the frontage is an added single-storey
structure of stone rubble with a lean-to roof of corrugated iron. Barn has scissor-
braced roof.
