Barn approx. 100m SW of Martin Hall
Farmhouse (not included)


Barn. Probably later C16 or very early C17, altered and
enlarged in C17 and slightly enlarged in C18.
Timber-framed construction, partly replaced and partly
enclosed by walls of large dressed sandstone blocks, with a
one-bay addition of handmade red brick on a matching stone
plinth; now roofed with corrugated asbestos sheet.
Three bays on a north-south axis, with an outshut to the east
side and a one-bay addition at the north end. The west side,
east outshut and south gable walls are all of stone, with
moulded plinths; the west side and the gable have regularly
spaced slit breathers; on the west side the former centre bay
has a full-height porch to the waggon entrance; and on the
east side the outshut has a 4-light window with
cavetto-moulded mullions.
INTERIOR: the former east side and north gable walls are of
post-and-truss construction with square framing and remains of
very unusual horizontal plank panelling.
The side wall has 3 intermediate posts to each bay (except the
centre waggon entrance) with 3 rails making 4 tiers of panels,
and the uppermost with angle-braces, the lower panels now
filled with brick but the upper filled with horizontal staves
(or crude planks) coated with daub. Intermediate posts have
been removed from the gable wall, except those next to the
corner posts, where there are remains of broad horizontal
planks fitted into vertical grooves.
The tie-beams of the roof trusses have angle-braces from the
principal posts of the east wall and the vacant mortices of
former braces near the west side, where the wallposts have
been replaced by stone piers with moulded caps; and the
principal-rafter trusses have angle stuts and windbraces to 2
pairs of purlins.
