Range of farm buildings. C15, C16 and C17. Timber framed on low
brick sills, dark weatherboarded. Steep pitched roofs now of
corrugated iron, half-hipped generally but hipped stable. An L-
shaped range facing S consisting of C15 5-bay double-aisled barn

C16); a C16 4-bay unaisled barn adjacent on W; and a 3-bay C17
stable at right-angles running S from W end of 4-bay barn. The
tall aisled barn has opposed central double-doorways under lean-
to roofs, heavy jowled posts with long curved square-section
braces to tie-beams and the arcade plates which have edge-halved
scarf-joints with bridled butts and 2 face pegs. Aisle-ties have
jowled end and passing brace from reverse-assembled aisle wall to
back of arcade post. Similar expanded ends to rails and curved
tension braces in partition enclosing granary in end bay.
Inclined queen-post clapsed-purlin collar roof. Short spur walls
and sill plates to carry bases of arcade posts. Granary only as
deep as nave of barn, with heavy axial beams to upper floor and
also to loft over. Lower 4-bay barn has double doors on S in 2nd
bay from E, with lean-to extension at rear opposite the doorway.
Heavy jowled posts and double-curved tie beams supported by deep
curved braces. Curved tension bracing in low walls. Heavy
inclined queen-posts support clasped purlin in each slope. Edge-
halved scarf joint with bridled butts in wall plate. Moulded
offset to heads of doorposts. Late C17 3-bay stable with
unjowled posts and door in middle of E wall. Curved braces to
straight tie-beams. Clasped-purlin collar roof. Face-halved
bladed scarf joint in wall plate over post. An impressive group
of historic farm buildings.
