8/311 Barn about 5 metres east of Pitt
Barn, possibly originally a house. Probably a late medieval house, later used as a
barn. Cob on stone rubble footings, one wall partly r,ebuilt in brick ; corrugated
iron roof, probably originally thatched.
Plan: Rectangular on plan with 2 different roof structures : a 2-bay jointed cruck
roof at the north end and a later, probably C18 roof at the south end with 4 trusses.
The 2 northernmost bays have sooted timbers suggesting 2 possibilities : either an
accidental fire which seems less likely given the nature and extent of the smoke-
blackening, or a medieval open hall house.
Exterior: Plain elevations with opposed threshing doors and a later doorway in the
left gable end. .
Interior: The jointed cruck truss is side-pegged with threaded purlins and a mortised
collar., the cruck feet decending to the stone plinth. The 4 later trusses are collar
rafter and pegged.
Group value with Pitt Farmhouse.
