1/300 Leighton Furnace Barn


Barn thought to be the 'Great Coal House' of Leighton Furnace, which opened
in 1718. Limestone rubble with slate roof. West wall blank with two blocked
1st floor doorways. East wall has openings with plain reveals. From left
to right are: a small window; a door, now a shippon; a wide opening to a
modern implement store with a wooden lintel and some brick dressings; a wide
barn entrance with segmental head. The north gable has a wide opening with
wooden lintel. The south gable, at the upper end of the slope, has a 1st
floor pitching hole with wooden lintel. Interior. Roof trusses appear to
have hardwood principals and softwood ties. The barn seems to be
contemporary with the ruined ore store nearby. It is comparable with the
Great Coal House at Duddon Furnace, but is in a far better state of
preservation. Fell, Alfred The early iron industry of Furness and District .
1908, reprinted 1968, p.210. `
