SY 29 NW WIDWORTHY

4/143 Barn approximately 35 metres east
- of Sutton Barton Farmhouse
4.6.84
GV II

Barn. Probably mid - late C16, some C19 additions. Exposed local stone and flint
rubble and some Beerstone dressings; corrugated iron roof with some thatch below.
The C19 granary extension is similar stone rubble with brick dressings and slate
roof.
Plan: the barn is built across the hillslope facing east. It is a large threshing
barn with opposing full height doorways to the threshing floor a little left (south)
of centre. A C19 granary projects at right angles to rear, and overlaps a little,
the left end. Other secondary outshots to rear.
Exterior: the large front doorway is a plain opening. There are 2 hayloft loading
hatches to left and were probably 2 to right but the end one has been enlarged to
another doorway. The roof is hipped to left and gable-ended to right with shaped
kneelers and coping. There is a narrow Beerstone ventilator in that end. The rear
doorway is flanked by buttresses with weathered offsets. The granary has an
external staircase.
Interior: the threshing floor is flanked by stone rubble an cob partitions. These
are probably C17 since they are spanned by 2 chamfered and scroll-stopped beams.
The southern section has a hayloft over carried on probably secondary roughly
chamfered crossbeams. The northern section is open to the roof. The roof is
original; it is 8 bays and carried on side-pegged jointed cruck trusses with cranked
collars and three sets of through purlins.
Despite its poor condition this is a fine and unusually large C16 barn.
