4/16 Barn at Thorley Hall
(25 metres SW of house)


Barn. C16. Tall 5-bay timberframed weatherboarded with steep
old tile roof. Low red brick sill wall. Half-hipped roof with
projecting gabled porch at centre of S side and double doors to
yard in middle of N side. Heavy chamfered bay posts with
pronounced step at jowl, and tension braces down to mid-height
tenoned rail, at each corner and each side of central bay. Long
curved braces support tie beams. Chamfered wall plate. Clasped
purlin roof without collars. Heavy angled queen struts support
purlins in notch at junction with principal rafter. Curved wind
braces. Most rafters and wall studs and the brick sill appear to
be original as well as the main frame. The barn appears as a
sketch on the estate plan of 1672/3, and in Buckler's drawing of
Thorley Hall c.1832, both in HRO. Of special importance for the
survival of so much of its original fabric
