4/119 Barn to the east of Glebe House


Barn in use as garage. Circa early C16 with some C20 repair. Colourwashed rendered
cob, some rebuilding and facing in brick, slate roof half-hipped at left (north) end,
hipped at right end.
The barn faces Glebe House across a yard of pitched stones and was probably a
threshing barn used for rectorial tithes. 6-bay barn with opposed double doors in
the fourth bay from the left (north) end and additional double doors (probably C20)
at the rear (east). There is no evidence that the barn was ever lofted. The right
(south) end bay has been largely rebuilt in brick and the front (west) side has been
partly faced in brick. There has been some C20 repair to the roof structure including
the replacement of the ridge.
Single-storey. The front (west) elevation has a massive original timber doorway with
the jambs canted towards the centre and mortised and pegged into a straight lintel.
Large plank doors with strap hinges and gudgeon hooks are probably C18 or C19. To
the left of the doorway a 2-light C19 fixed window. A mullioned window in the left
(north) gable end has a plain deep central mullion with 2 smaller mullions to left
and right. The rear elevation original doorway preserves its jambs but the lintel
has been replaced.
Interior Remarkable survival of 5 jointed cruck trusses with slightly cambered
collars mortised into the principals, 2 tiers of butt purlins and curved wind braces
between the purlins. The old ridge (which no longer survives) was diagonally set and
threaded; strengthening pieces survive below the junction of the principals.
A very unusual survival for the region.
