26.4.57 Tithe Barn


C16, C17. A large rectangular brick structure, divided externally into 6 bays by
buttresses, with 2 tall (4-centred) arched entrances at the second and five bay, each
bay with 3 ventilating slots at 2 levels. The steep gabled tile roof is carried on
arch-braced purlins supported on timber trusses (11 within a 10-bay interior
sub-division) comprising a high cambered tie-beam above arch braces, with 4 verticals,
the 2 centre uprights meeting a secondary tie. There are vertical studs above the
massive wallplates. The red brick walling is in English bond, the buttresses are
weathered at the top and midway, with a high plinth round the whole building. The
entrances have inner stone arches; on the north side are smaller plain brick arches.
Attached to the west end is a smaller unit of the later period but in a similar style,
having 4 bays and a north aisle (still of lesser total width than the main block). The
walling is again in red brickwork, with 2 ventilators at 2 levels to each bay, a high
plinth, and a cambered arch to the entrance. The Queen Post truss rests on the brick
wall on the south side but has posts and lower ties (with struts) on a low wall linked
to the outer aisle walling. Roofing is of corrugated iron, which extends across an
outshot on the south side of 2 eastern bays, the form of this lower roof continuing as
a tile roof for one bay in front of the main block. This outshot has weather-boarded
walling within brick pillars, on a low brick wall. Ancient Monument.
