Barn on roadside at
TL 61 SW 3/647 Faulkner's Hall known
Top Barn

I GV


An important early medieval complex of timber framed buildings now forming an
L plan barn by reason of ancient additions to the main structure. Gable end
corrugated iron roofs and weatherboard clad walls. East facing gabled midstrey,
added on adaptation to barn, with great doors. Inside, the original structure
consists of 6 main posts of an aisled Hall with carved oak capitals, having
carinate filets below the abacus, of a Norman type. Beneath the present floor
level the posts retain their timber sole pads. Some of the poets are trenched
for passing braces. Other early features include traces of reversed assembly
and tap joints, now out of their original contexts. Alteration to barn use
probably occured in the late C15 or early C16 when the timber frame of the west
wing would appear to have been added.
