ca. 1520 Barn. Heavily framed in oak, of eight bays, with slightly later and off-central
midstrey. Roofs ridged and gabled with eaves and fly-hips to main range. Black weather-
boards and peg-tiles. Later midstrey, forelock-bolted to the posts of the fourth bay
from the west wall side - girt, with five studs per bay of which the central stud is
principal, curved wind-braces let into inner surfaces and spiked and confined to the
returns and every alternate bay. Posts unusually heavy and jowled, with obtusely pitched
tie beam braces with as many as eight pegs to each chase-mortise Roof with queen-posts
and two side - purlins per slope, the common-rafters passing the upper end tenoned into
the lower side - purlin-curved wind braces in each pitch. All principal timbers stop-
chamfered. The midstrey retains Great Doors, much repaired and proberbly C18, it has
queen-post roof and matching wind-braces; it was an afterthought because the main top-
plate was cut through when it was added.
