Large aisled barn
at Manor Farm
Barn. Late-medieval timbered interior, perhaps some contemporary walling with
alteration to south-aisle mid C18, C20 alterations. Random-rubble sandstone
to early work (partly rendered), C18 hammer-dressed stone, C20 red-brick
patching; asbestos roof. Aisled, of 7 bays. North side: large doorway cut
into 1st bay of aisle up to first purlin in roof. Doorway in 3rd bay has square
base block to left, wooden-lintel and plank door. To right, occupying 4th and
5th bays brick wall. Other bays have rubble walls. Rear: south side: quoins;
aisle cut back in centre 3 bays with former stables in outer bays with quoined
angles. 3rd bay has tall cart entry with harr-hung doors. 4th bay in hammer-
dressed stone. 5th bay has posts on padstones visible with mortices for aisle-
ties, set between C20 brick. Within the re-entrant angles of aisles doorways,
one with stable-door. Right-hand return: rendered gable has large doorway cut
in the lintel recently raised c1985. Left-hand gable of rubble.
Interior: brick wall divides the barn into 3 + 4 bays. Posts, on padstones,
have joweled heads and long curved braces to arcade-plate and tie-beam. Heavy
aisle-ties, some with curved principals. Wall-plate sits on aisle-tie which
has mortice-holes to soffie and remains of wall post (sawn flush) indicating
formerly timber-framed external walls. Original arcade-plate and tie-beams, some
heavily-cambered,but all except 3rd truss have replaced principals and struts.
3rd truss has steeply-pitched principal rafters and single curved angle-strut.
4th truss retains original curved struts. Purlins re-used from previous
timbered structure,most replaced in softwood. Rafters replaced except for 3rd
bay where some square-cut rafters survive.
Though much abused in the present century the timbered interior is a rare and
important survival in the region. Part of the Mexborough estate.
