17.8.87 Little Laverall

GV II

Barn, probably stables originally. C19. Exposed timber-framing on coursed
sandstone footings, part is thatched, part has a peg-tile roof.

Plan: Range of former agricultural buildings facing south West towards Little
Laverall (q.v.). Long low building to right with 2-storey section at the left
end.

Exterior: The low block is 4 bays with a plank door right of centre and 3
long but narrow horizontal windows containing rectangular panes of leaded
glass. Doorway in left end of the taller left block flanked by similar
windows but these have glazing bars. Thatch roof is gable-ended rising up to
the tile-roofed left block. Timbers of the frame of relatively narrow
scantling and include mostly straight braces but a large curving tension brace
at the right end may indicate older origins for the building. The building
backs onto the lane and the bank is revetted with coursed sandstone.

Interior: Has plain C19 carpentry detail.

This building forms part of a group with nearby Little Laverall (q.v.) and The
Cottage and Holly Cottage (q.v.).
