3/73 Barn and shippon at
Wright's Farmhouse


Barn and shippon: C17 with minor alterations. Dry stone, buff
sandstone rubble walls. Kerridge stone-slate roof and stone ridge.
Long rectangular plan with partial outshuts to rear. Barn forms
centre of low building with cart entrance with wooden lintel on west
face and similar but smaller door in east front. Some ventilation
slots and square pitch holes. Small shippons at either end. To north
door has long and short quoins and a lintel. In south gable almost a
laithe arrangement with cambered, near triangular stone heads to doors
and windows.
Interior: 4 roof trusses of tie beam, 2 diagonal struts and collar.
The best of a small number of barns in dry-stone. All stones are laid
"watershot" (to throw off the rain) and the lack of mortar allows the
barn to breathe. See examples at Rainowlow Farm and Hedgerow Farm,
Rainow (q.v.).
