Barn. C16, much-altered in the C20. Local stone rubble; corrugated iron roof,
formerly thatch.
Plan and exterior description: former threshing barn facing onto a lane to the
north-west and backing on to a later farmyard. Most of the front wall has been
demolished to create an open 5-bay front. There is a stone crosswall dividing the
barn into two compartments, the left one larger than the right one. The roof is
Interior is open from the ground to the roof and the interior walls are plastered.
The original 7-bay roof survives substantially intact and is made up side-pegged
jointed cruck trusses with collars mortised, tenoned and pegged to the principals.
The 3 sets of trenched purlins and ridge are mostly intact and several bays still
contain curving windbraces from single sets between the lowest purlins. The cruck
posts descend nearly to ground level and it is they that determine the bay
arrangement of the open front.
This rare example of a C16 barn forms part of a good group with Ayshford Court
(q.v.) and its associated buildings.
