Barn attached to rear of
II Woolstaplers House
Former Barn in divided ownership, now partly converted as extension to Woolstaplers'
House (q.v.). Probably C18, altered; partly adapted by C R Ashbee in the early 1900s;
roof-structure 1984. Coursed and squared rubble, North, West and possibly once the
South sides formerly open between ashlar piers with small offsets; stone slate roof
with late C20 ashlar chimney. Floor (?) inserted but removed from South end; garret
to North end below a half-hip. Irregular openings; the South end, unconverted at time
of inspection (June 1985), retains small-pane glazing filling the central bay to West
and the 1st floor of the right-hand bay and leaded lights in the partly bricked-in
opening to East; the North gable end has late C20 windows to 1st floor and garret,
rough ashlar underbuilding to girder over ground floor and late C20 plastered block-wood
panels within a timber-frame (restored 1984) replacing rubble panels. The South gable
end incorporates part of an ashlar pier but was probably never open, it carries a
gutter at the wall-head as the roof-structure rises just within the structure of the
building. Interior: ground floor on North (modernised) end retains a chamfered beam;
from discarded timbers it was possible to see that the roof-structure had been two rows
of butt-purlins with sliptenons (which are not common before the C18). The 2 parts now
divided by a late C20 block work party wall.
This barn is said to be associated with the wool-trade; the present structure is not
mediaeval and the open sides suggest forage or implement storage.
