Aisled barn, C16, altered in C20. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with
corrugated iron. 4 bays aligned approximately NE-SW with entrances on both

to tiebeams and arcade plates. Face-halved scarfs bladed at one end, housed at
the other end (Hewett 1980, Fig. 269). Heavy studs. In end walls, curved
