Bury Farm
(loom to N of the Bury)
19.10.51 (W arm formerly listed as
West Mill Tithe Barn)


Barn range. C16 or early C17, roofs altered in early C20.
Timber frame on low red brick sill, dark weatherboarded. W gable
end infilled with red brick with grey diaper patterning. W arm
has red pantile roof. S arm roofed in corrugated asbestos, with
steep pitched roof at N end and gambrel roof at S. Similar
shorter N arm. An T-shaped range of aisled barns, 8 bays in W
arm and 8 bays in S arm with unaisled short N arm. Tall aisle-
posts with ogee moulding at base of jowl. Curved braces to
arcade-plates and tie beams, and between jowled bay posts in
aisle-walls and the aisle tie-beams. Clasped purlin roof with
single purlin and trusses with collar and inclined struts across
the angles. Original steep roof survives in 2 bays at N end of S
arm. W arm has had aisle walls heightened and lower pitched roof
built above tie beams. S part of S range retains steep roofs to
aisles, but roof rebuilt much lower-pitched to nave, creating a
gambrel roof form. Face-halved bladed scarf joint used in arcade
plates over each post. An unusually extensive aisled barn range.
