8/205 Pair of barns approximately 60
- metres south of Winscott Barton
Pair of barns. One is C16, reroofed in the mid C19 with some C20 alterations to
rear; the other is late C18 - early C19. The older barn is local stone rubble with
some cob patching, the other is plastered cob on tall stone rubble footings; slate
Plan: Pair of adjoining threshing barns set end to end facing west on slightly
different alignments, and lining the approach to Winscott Barton Farmhouse (q.v.).
Both barns have opposing full height double doorways onto the threshing floors. The
left (northern) barn, nearest the farmhouse, is the older of the two. It has a C19
former horse engine house projecting to rear and some of the rear wall was demolished
in the C20 to enlarge capacity.
Exterior: Both barns have full height front doorways flanked by short projecting mid-
stray walls with shallow hoods over made by carrying down the eaves a short distance.
The front doorway of the older barn retains its originally C16 doorframe; a large oak
shoulder-headed arch with chamfered surround. The other doorframe is C19 and both
contain C19 and C20 2-leaf plank doors. The right barn has a small doorway towards
its left end. The roof is continuous across both barns, hipped to left and half-
hipped to right.
Interior: Both barns are open to the roof. The left barn has a replacement roof of
mid C19 king post trusses and the right barn its original roof of A-frame trusses
with spiked lap-jointed collars.
This pair of barns are an important component of the setting of Winscott Barton
Farmhouse (q.v.). Futhermore the C16 doorframe to the older barn is a rare survival.
