Beer's Barn


Houses. Circa late C17 or C18. Roughcast stone rubble. Thatched roof
with gabled ends; rear wing has hipped roof. Rendered stacks at gable ends
with slate weathering; the right hand end stack projects slightly; lateral
rendered brick stack at the outer right hand side of rear wing.
Plan: Overall L-shaped plan. The main front range has a 2-room plan, a
central entrance passage with a staircase at the back; each room is heated
from a gable end stack, the large left hand room was probably originally
the kitchen with a lower floor level. The single storey wing behind the
right hand room maybe integral and probably originally unheated; it now has
a lateral stack on the outer right side. The outshut at the rear of the
main range appears to be an addition, probably of late C18 or early C19.
In the mid to late C20 the space between the outshut and rear wing was
infilled with a single storey addition.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front. S circa late C19 or
early C20 2-light casements on the first floor and 2 C19 2-light casements
on the ground floor with glazing bars. Doorway to right of centre with a
C20 panelled door and small C20 brick gabled porch.
Rear elevation: Single storey rear wing to left has hipped roof and large
C20 casement in the end wall. The main roof is swept down over the rear
outshut. The space between the rear wing and outshut has been filled with
a mid to late C20 single storey flat-roof addition.
Interior: Only the ground floor of the main range was inspected, both
rooms have blocked fireplaces, the left hand room has exposed rough joists
and the right hand room has a roughly chamfered cross-beam. The wider
staircase at the back of the passage is C20.
The roof structure was not inspected.
