5/10 Barn and cow house about
60 yards north-west of
Barn, formerly tithe barn, and cow house. Possibly C14 or C15, with C18
cow house extension. High sandstone rubble and brick plinth, timber-framed
with brick cogging, weatherboards and corrugated iron roofs. Six plus one
bays aligned roughly north/south with five pairs of cruck blades. East elevation
faces the farmyard on falling ground; two opposed entrances with ledged doors,
one in the right bay and the other four bays further south. Frame is two large
square panels high from plinth to wall-plate with weather boarded top panels
and brick to bottom; several tension braces especially near the doors. Lower
C18 cow house extension to south has one bay with four panels of framing of
relatively light scantling to wall-plate and ledged door to east side; C19
open lean-to on its south end (not included). Interior: cruck blades are
halved at the top, the pair immediately north of the southern threshing floor
have cruck spurs, the rear have ties but some have been sawn off. Massive
posts and rails remaining in two panels at the south end at junction with
adjoining cow house. At the north end are indications that the barn formerly
extended at least another bay in that direction. A most spectacularly sited
cruck barn with picturesque relationship to nearby parish church (qv) and
Court Farmhouse (qv). Graded II* as a complete example of a substantial
late medieval barn. (RCHM, Vol II, p 9).
