2/69 Barn immediately to north-
west of Wards Farmhouse


Barn. Late C16, early C17 and C18. 8 bays. Timber-framed and
weatherboarded:corrugated asbestos roof on 2 levels, gabled on the south west,
hipped on the north-east. The 6 bays to the north-east have good quality
framing with a middle rail, and 2 wide cross-entries infilled with later
brickwork and studding. The 3 end bays on the north-east have queen-post roof
trusses which originally had 2 pairs of arched braces, an unusual feature.
The evidence of partitions at each end of these 3 central bays, one with
weatherboarding remaining, suggests that they formed the original building,
extended soon after on the north-east, and in the C18 on the south-west. The
2 south-western bays have a lower roof-level, and incorporate a quantity of
reused timbers. This is the oldest surviving barn in Thelnetham.
