Barn at SS 523 152
SS 51 NW
7/136 Barn known as "The Barracks" at
- SS 524 159
Barn. Dated 1734. Walls of roughly squared rubble lined internally with brick.
Slate roof gabled at right end, hipped at left-hand end.
Plan: Rectangular plan with threshing floor off-centre. There is evidence, however, that the building was originally L-shaped.
Exterior: Single storey. Asymmetrical front with wide cart entrance to right of
centre with projecting rubble buttress to either side and to right. Slit opening
with dressed stone surround to left. Low doorway with brick arch to left of front.
Two thirds of the way along the left of the front is a straight joint and the
stonework beyond it changes - probably where it has been infilled when the wing
projecting from it was demolished. What remains of this wing is a section of its
outer wall, capped with slate, projecting from the left end of the barn. In the
right-hand gable wall are 4 slits in 2 rows with a sandstone plaque inscribed 1734 at the centre. Rear elevation has a blocked cart entrance to left of centre with slit opening to its left and 2 to its right.
Interior: C18 roof trusses with trenched purlins, lapped and pegged collars and tie beams.
