4/69 Barn approximately 40 metres east
- of Hayne Farmhouse
Threshing barn. Mid C17. Exposed cob on low rubble footings; corrugated iron roof
Gable-ended barn facing east but identical each side with large opposing central
doorways to the threshing floors. Doorways are flanked by short projecting midstrey
walls and the roof is carried down here to create a small hood. On the front there
are holes over the doorway lintel which suggest that it once had a larger hood.
These holes however break through a shallow semi-circular recess above the doorway.
Its function is not known; possibly there was a date plaque. The doors are oak and
may be original. Either side of each door are 2 ventilators and each gable end wall
contains 2 with a third in the gable. Remarkably most retain their original oak
Interior Barn is open from ground to roof and retains its original timber threshing
floor. The original 4-bay roof is very interesting. The A-frame trusses have
halvings for missing dovetail pegged lap-jointed collars and near the apex secondary
collars are motise, tenon and pegged to the principal rafters. The principals are
all reused principals from presumably C16 side-pegged jointed cruck trusses and were
reset upside down. They contain mortises for original threaded purlins but were
slotted for trenched purlins on reuse.
This barn appears to be contemporary with Hayne farmhouse (q.v.) and the timbers
appear to derive from an earlier farmhouse. It is also remarkably complete
considering its age and, moreover, forms part of an attractive group with the
farmhouse (q.v.), the stable and other barn (q.v.)
