Barn and cowhouse, now workshops. Later C17 barn, early C17 cowhouse.
Timber frames on red brick sills (renewed) dark weatherboarded with
steep old red tile roofs. A tall 5-bay barn with continuous added
side-aisles orientated E-W with projecting gabled porches to N and S and
lower 6-bay cowhouse attached to SE corner and running N-S. The barn has
unjowled posts, mid-height rails tenoned in-line, long straight braces
to cambered tie-beams, inclined queen-post trusses with clasped purlins
and diminished principals. Face-halved bladed scarf joint in wallplate
over each post but squint-butted scarf to purlin. Angle ties in porches.
Roof continued down over rear contemporary aisles with single purlin
propped from aisle ties fixed to faces of posts. Remains of unusual
raised threshing floor of wide planks carried on irregular timbers with
carefully notched cross-battens between, supported on cross timbers and
red brick piers (survey report by KLLHMS 1978 before part demolition of
floor). Older cowhouse has unjowled posts but curved braces to cambered
tie-beams and inclined queen-post clasped-purlin roof. Face halved
bladed scarf joints in wallplate over posts.
