SX76SE Barn Immediately North
1/95 of Higher Allerton


Barn. C17 altered in circa early Cl9. Local limestone rubble and cob upper
part of walls. Corrugated asbestos sheet roof with gabled ends. The roof
continues down over a canopy across the front. Bitumenized slurried slate
roof over the lean-to.
Plan: Rectangular plan barn with a loading door at the right hand gable
end. The floor seems to have been inserted later to form a bank barn. the
barn and granary above have access from a later rear doorway. On the
ground floor a cowhouse or roothouse and probably a cartshed and a later
lean-to, probably a cleaving shed on the front and at the left end. the
barn adjoins the stables (qv) which is situated to the right.
Exterior: Front: Doorway to the right with keeping hole recess in one
jamb; cart-shed doorway to right of centre and external stone stairs to
left under the canopy which is formed as a deep eaves by the main roof
continuing down; under the stairs a dog shelter. Lean-to cleaving shed to
the left of front and around the left end; it was originally an open-
fronted cart shed.
At the back a wide barn doorway to right of centre with chamfered frame,
its lintel replaced and old plank doors. A shoot possibly to a root house
at ground level on the right.
Roof: 7-bay roof with 6 trusses; straight principal rafters with morticed
ridge, dovetail lap jointed cranked collars, threaded diagonal ridge-piece
and threaded purlins. The whole roof entirely intact except for the common
rafters which have been replaced. The feet of the principals are dovetail
lap-jointed into wall posts of uncertain length because they are concealed
in the walls, but where the rear doorway has been widened the dovetail
joint is exposed.
