10/222 Barn approximately 20 metres north
- of the White House and Little
Cider house, forms barn. Late C16 - early C17, re-roofed probably in 1868 when
nearby White House and Little Orchard (q.v) was built, some of the walls rebuilt in
mid C20. Original part is plastered red cob on stone rubble footings, rest rebuilt
in C20 concrete blocks; thatch roof.
The former threshing barn faces south-east and has a central full height doorway
flanked by short projecting midstrey walls and containing C20 2-flap double plank
door. The roof is gable-ended to left and half-hipped. to right. There was once an
opposing full-height doorway in the rear wall but this was blocked in the mid C20
when the walling of the right (north-east) end was rebuilt.
Interior: is mostly open to a roof of C19 tie beam trusses but there is an apple
loft in the western corner built of plain but sturdy oak timbers. At the left
(south-west) end a late C16 - ear1y C17 side-pegged jointed cruck truss remains.
The underside of the loft timbers and the roof timbers are smoke-blackened,
presumably from some industrial process.
The barn is one of a group of listed buildings in The Green.
