4/73 Barn and shippons approximately 15
- metres to north-west of Lee Barton
Barn and shippon, possibly former separate service range to Lee Barton (q.v.).
Probably early C17 with late C19 alterations and additions. Uncoursed stone rubble
to ground floor and cob to first floor, partly rebuilt in stone rubble. Gable-ended
corrugated-iron roof, with lean-to roofs over minor additions.
Plan: Range aligned approximately north-west/south-east, facing farmyard to north-
east (ground falls to right). Shippons to left divided by stone wall, with loft
above, and barn to right. Later additions included one-storey outshuts to front at
right-hand and left-hand ends, and further C19 alterations included the open front to
the loft at left and the rebuilding of the right-hand gable end. It is possible that
this range was formerly a separate service range to Lee Barton (see chamfered beams
and mortice and tenoned collar truss) altered and with barn added in the later C17.
Exterior: Shippon to left has open-fronted loft divided by a square stone pier and 2
ground-floor plank doors with wooden lintels. Lean-to addition to left. Large lean-
to addition to right has cart entrance with pair of large double plank doors and 2
small windows to left with brick reveals and wooden lintels. Left-hand gable end has
plank loft door with brick reveals and wooden lintel and ground-floor 2-light window
with wooden lintel. Right-hand gable and also has plank door with wooden lintel.
Interior: Loft in left-hand end supported on 2 low stone cross walls. Right-hand
shippon has three C17 cambered chamfered cross beams (right-hand one half beam) with
straight cut and broach stops. C17 nine-bay roof mainly with C17 trusses consisting
of straight principals and pegged lap-jointed collars. The third truss from left is
probably late C16 or early C17, with mortice and tenoned collar and principals with
curved feet, and the first truss from the left is also probably of c.1600, with
cambered collar, principals with curved feet and mortice and tenoned apex. Both
trusses (probably reused) show evidence of former trenched purlins.
This building forms part of a farmstead grouped around Lee Barton (q.v.).
