5/55 Barn approximately 30
metres north-west of
Scotton Old Hall (formerly
15.3.66 listed as "Barn at Old Hall")


Barn. C17 and C18. Coursed squared rubble, graduated stone slate roof.
Single storey, 10 bays; with rear outshut. Quoins. Central cart entrance
with chamfered quoined jambs and a raised segmental arch. Byre door to left
with similar jambs and monolithic segmental lintel. 2 inserted square
windows to left again with a square loading doorway above which has a large
lintel and is flanked by a row of 7 (left) and 10 (right) pigeon holes. To
right of cart entrance: 3 rows of slit vents; an inserted doorway far right;
an original loading door with sandstone surround above. Rear: double doors
set back from line of outshut; the outshut also interrupted to left by the
insertion of a large gabled wheelhouse with square openings and pantile
roof. Blocked doorway and two 6-pane windows to right. Left return: owl
hole in apex of gable. Right return: chamfered jambs and flat lintel to
first-floor doorway, 4 rows of slit vents; attached shed not of special
interest. Interior: 2 rear aisle posts remain at the north end of the
building; they are braced to large cross beams which rest on the top of the
east wall and carry a queen-post roof. The remainder of the aisle posts
removed when a stone wall was inserted, the wallplate however survives. The
slit vents on the north and east walls are single splayed. The north end of
the building appears to be little altered since the C17 but the southern
half has been divided along the line of the outshut, suggesting a separation
of byre or stabling. The building is probably described in 1727 in an
indenture between Sir Henry Slingsby of Scriven (owner of the lordship) and
Edmund Whitehead of St Robert's Priory in Knaresborough. Sir Henry was
letting the Priory the Chantry House, with barn and stable and closes, where
Mathew Umpleby lived, but he excepted from the agreement the barn, stable
and fold which Mathew enjoyed, they "being part of the great barn called
Hall Barn". This suggests that the barn had been let in two parts - perhaps
one part with the Hall and the other part with the Chantry House (not
surviving). A T Waterer, 'Records of the Parish of Farnham, etc', Type-
script, c1928, Harrogate Public Library.
