11/12 Aisled Barn at
- (70m to SE of house)


Aisled barn. Probably C13 or early C14 (from jointing
techniques), end bays C17, roof C19. Timber frame weatherboarded
on red brick sill (renewed) with low pitched corrugated iron
roof. A 6-bay 2-aisled barn facing S, with later lean-to on S
not of special interest. Original 3-bay structure represented by
2nd, 3rd and 4th bays from W. Heavy jowled arcade posts each
trenched for passing-brace on side nearer midstray, and supported
on plate and spur sill-wall. Jowled wall-posts and aisle ties.
Socket for brace from arcade post to tie beam below passing-
brace. Heavy square-section straight braces from posts to arcade
plates. These last are jointed by stop-splayed scarf joints with
under-squinted butts, transverse key and 7 face pegs. C17
replacement cambered tie-beams for inclined queen-strut, side-
purlin former roof. Aisle structure extended one bay at W and 2
bays at E in C17 with similar jowled posts but arcade plate
jointed by face-halved bladed scarf joints over each post. Side
walls heightened in C19 and lower pitched roof built. Unusual
survival of a medieval aisled barn structure. Probably built by
the Furnivall family as sub tenants of the Earls of Richmond (VCH
(1912) 124-26).
