723-1/5/248 (East side)
Barn 30m north-east of Canterbury
Tye Hall Farmhouse


Barn. Late C16, C18. Timber-framed and weatherboarded with
roof of peg tiles and C20 flat tiles. 5 bay plan with central
midstrey and simple gabled waggon porch to SW front. Outshuts
both sides of waggon porch creating a continuous `catslide'
roof to low eaves. Doors to waggon porch C20. 2 old doors in
each outshut on either side. Fixed window in each gable, NW
2-light, SE 3x3 panes with glazing bars. Some replacement of
outshut wall by C20 brick at SE end.
INTERIOR almost all of one build with minimal alteration and
replacement, principally, near NE midstrey door frame.
Principal trusses have jowled posts some with a decorative
step stop at base of jowl swelling, curved arched braces to
straight tie-beam and principal rafters with collars supported
by queen posts. 2 rows of side purlins in each pitch, butted
to rafters and joggled from bay to bay, common rafters ride
over the purlins. Some of the faces on the principal rafters
have redundant joints, apparently for wind bracing now gone.
These joints are symmetrically arranged but original system,
or proposed system obscure. The roof is now stiffened
longitudinally by members inserted at some time rising from
the queen post feet to the lower side purlins. An almost
complete set of carpenters gouged, assembly marks can be seen
on the open trusses numbered in pairs, I to IIII. Wall
studding is stout, studs set at approx 0.5m centres, braced
only above the middle rail with stout curved primary braces
paired one each way at the corner posts and singly away from
the barn centre at the posts of the open trusses. Several face
halved and bladed scarf joints on top wall plates. Simple
chamfering of arrises on horizontal members. The waggon porch
is original. Its roof trusses have side purlins and clasping
collars. The inner truss has a pair of refined soulace braces
to the collar and the outer truss was originally wind braced.
Some interior horizontal boarding survives with nails
indicating its original use over the whole inner face, and
lack of any evidence of wattle and daub infilling, together
with a consistent weather fissuring of all the frame members
on their outer faces and partially on their edges suggests
that the frame was left exposed for some long time, being only
boarded on the inside with daub packed against it from the
outside, partially filling the stud panels. The 2 outshuts on
the SW side are secondary and must have been added some
considerable time later as they cover the weathered outer face
of the barn framing. They are probably C18. The 2 smaller
timber-framed and weatherboarded buildings with pantiled gable
end outshuts that touch the barn at both ends and project
forward as wings to the SW have no historical or technical
importance. The one to the NW is C19 and is much replaced
inside. The one to the SE has framing reused from several
periods again much replaced. The group, however, comprising
the principal barn, plus the 2 symmetrical wings has
considerable visual group value when seen from Canterbury Tye
Farmhouse (qv) to the SW. The barn and Canterbury Tye
Farmhouse form a group.
