WALLERTHWAITE (north side)

5/63 Barn approximately 30
metres east of Markington
6.3.67 Hall, with attached
chapel (formerly listed as
Barn and Outbuildings at
Markington Hall).


Barn and attached outbuildings, now chapel. C16 barn, possibly earlier,
with C19 and C20 restorations, outbuildings converted 1939 by Lord
Illingworth for the Wilberforces. Timber frame clad in sandstone, limestone
and cobble, attached range of rubble; pantile roofs with eaves courses of
stone slates to barn. 5-bay barn with side aisles and attached chapel
range, projecting at right-angle on left. West front: quoins. Large
central double board door; blocked ventilation slits to right. Chapel range
has 4-panel doors and paired pointed windows. Rear (towards road): low cart
entrance with sandstone surround. Left return: attached outbuilding, now a
garage, not of special interest. Right return: 3 rows of 3 blocked slit
vents. The roof, steeply-pitched at ridge, shallower towards eaves.
Interior: posts are set on padstones and have clear carpenters marks.
Braces to tie beams and arcade plates. The barn has been described by the
North Yorkshire and Cleveland Vernacular Buildings Study Group (1977) when
it was concluded that the original barn, possibly pre-1500, was of 3 bays
with side and end aisles and timber-framed outer walls. Mortice holes on
the surviving posts suggest that the interior was originally divided by
timber partitions. The trusses supporting the roof are composed of narrow
principals with collars and short king-posts. North Yorkshire and Cleveland
Vernacular Buildings Study Group, Report Number 283, 1977.
