TL 496 129 SHEERING HARLOW ROAD
Barn approx. 10 metres N
of Sheering Hall .
(formerly listed as Barns at
2/18 Sheering Hall to N) -
Aisled barn, c.1600. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with corrugated
plastics material. 6 bays aligned approx. N-S, one midstrey to W in third bay
from S. C19 and C20 lean-to extensions to E. Half-hipped at both ends. The
3 N bays are older in material and design then the remainder. The N arcade
posts have large jowls, shores to the wallposts, arched braces to the tiebeams
with struts in the spandrels, arched braces to the arcade plates. The roof
trusses have heavy queen struts, and high collars with collar-braces (soulaces).
There are 2 butt-purlins in each mainspan roof pitch, with curved wind-bracing
to the upper purlins only. The arcade plates and wallplates have face-halved
and bladed scarfs. A section of original wall at the NE has curved braces
trenched to the inside of the studs, but most of the walls have been rebuilt
with primary straight bracing. Immediately S of the central truss the arcade
plates are extended with simple scarfs, and all the structure to the S is
simpler and lighter. The arcade posts have slender jowls, there are no spandrel
struts, the braces to the arcade plates are straight, the queen struts, high
collars and collar braces are relatively thin, and there is one clasped through-
purlin in each mainspan roof pitch, without wind-bracing. It seems that the
3 northern bays were themselves a reconstruction c.1600 of a medieval aisled
barn, with lesser resources of timber and workmanship.
