5/77 Barn and linhays approximately
- 10m west of Lower Wotton
Barn, byre and linhays. C16 and C17, linhays given new roof structures in C19.
Cob on rubble footings, occasionally patched with C20 brick; corrugated iron
L-shaped range of farmbuildings. The main range faces south-east and comprises a
C16 barn with byre and hayloft added to right and range extended further right
(north-east) by C17 linhay. Another C17 linhay added at right angles to left
(south-west) end of barn facing north-east on to farmyard.
Barn has original oak shoulder-headed central front door which contains an ancient
plank door hung on strap hinges (one with fleur-de-lys final). The opposing rear
doorway is much larger and though it has been partly rebuilt with brick it contains
an oak frame with chamfered surround, possibly original. Each gable end has narrow
ventilators some containing square-section oak frames. Loading hatch to right on
front. 3-bay roof includes a C16 side-pegged jointed cruck truss on the left and a
C17 replacement, A-frame truss with pegged dovetail lap-jointed collar to right.
The front principal of the later truss is set on a post buried in the wall face.
The byre alongside has a ground floor doorway and first floor loading hatch. Its
roof timbers were replaced in C19. The linhay adjoining the byre is an unusual
double-fronted variety. An axial cob wall separates front and back stalls but only
stands to first floor level leaving the tallet open. It is 4 bays (Alcock's Type
T1) with full height posts of large scantling and the crossbeams are tusk-tenoned
to the posts. The roof trusses are C19 A-frame replacements with lap-jointed
collars fixed with iron nails and wooden pegs. The linhay on the front of the barn
is single-fronted but of similar construction, and of timbers of similarly large
scantling. It is 6 bays (Alcock's Type T1) but its roof was replaced earlier in
Cl9 with pegged tie-and-collar-bean trusses. Both linhay roofs are hipped at the
