10/255 Barn 10 metres west of
Grey's Cottage


Barn. C16, altered-in C17 and C19. Timber framed, weatherboarded, with some red
brick in English bond, roofed mainly with slate, with valleys of handmade red
plain tiles. 3 bays aligned NW-SE, with C17 midstrey to SW. C19 lean-to
extension in S angle. Jowled posts, curved braces trenched outside heavy
studding in NE wall, primary straight bracing with heavy studding in SW wall and
midstrey. Grooves for original infill of wattle and daub, removed. 2
edge-halved and bridled scarfs in NE wallplate, indicating the removal of an
earlier midstrey on that side. NW end infilled with brickwork, bricks of
various sizes re-used with lime mortar. Mortices for arched braces to tiebeams,
removed. Main roof rebuilt in C17. The midstrey is of C17 construction, taller
than the main building, with jowled posts, and some smoke-blackened rafters from
a medieval hall re-used, pegged at the apices, with clasped purlins. The inner
tiebeams of the main building have been tusk-tenoned through the inner posts of
the midstrey, effectively treated as anchor-beams, a rare construction.
Threshing floor of small bricks set on edge in middle bay and midstrey; the
floor of the outer bays treated with bitumen.
