This building was added to the list as the 12th Amendment, dated 25 April 1994.

The following buildings shall be added to the list:-


2/10001 Home Farm Barn


Barn. Mid C16, re-roofed in mid C17. Timberframed, clad in weatherboarding with
half-hipped tiled roof. South face has central door with lean-to pentice and slate-roofed lean-to
extension. On the east side of the entrance, the main plain tile roof continues down as catslide.
Five bay barn with very interesting mid C16 timber frame of extremely local carpentry. Jowled
posts and framing have 'detached' arch bracing of this particular part of the County. Walling
consists of principal and 'plank' studs such as can be seen in East Sussex. Possibly this unusual
technique was a London idea which found its way only into this part of Essex. Barn was
re-roofed, probably in mid C17 and now has aside purlin roof with queen posts and
wind-bracing. Bay spacing has been confused by these alterations. Interesting 'archaic' scarf-joints
in first phase and these are simply edge-halved with big face-pegs and sallied abutments.
