4/41 Barn c.20 metres north of
Higher Whitehalgh Farmhouse

Barn, probably C17, with later additions including 3 coach houses.
Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, stone slate roof. Six bays with
outshut coach houses to front of the 4th, 5th and 6th, lean-to cowsheds
to the rear. Wagon doorway to 3rd bay has canopy on cheek to the left
(extended) and an outshut to right, which has a sliding bulldoor and a
rounded corner. This outshut has 3 wagon doorways (now all reduced
in width) with exceptionally large lintels, the first of which,
covering 2 doorways, is c. 7 metres long (but now cracked): all these
said to have served coaches travelling old road from Manchester to
Clitheroe, and the 3rd, which has several cupboard recesses in the
inner wall, used for maintenance. At right end of barn are 2 stables with
original stalls, and tackle pegs in the beams. Interior: roof of fishbone-
strutted kingpost trusses, all to right of threshing bay original
(others renewed); entirely lofted except for threshing bay.
