Listing Text

The following building shall be added to the list:


TQ 54 NW 50/210 Barn immediately
south west of Coles


Barn. Circa early C18. Weatherboarded timber frame on brick plinth. Plain
clay tile roof with half-hipped ends and hipped midstrey with deeply overhanging
eaves at front. The timber frame of the south end wall was blown down in gale
in 1987.
Plan: 5 bays with wider central bay separated from the rest of the barn by
low partitions and with a midstrey at the front. Either side of the midstrey
there are outshuts at the front.
Exterior: east front has central hipped-roof midstrey on small brick piers
with a small doorway to its left and a window above. To the left and right
of the midstrey the main roof is carried down over outshuts which might have
been formerly open fronted. At the rear (west) a pair of plank doors in the
central waggon entrance.
Interior: except for the south end wall the frame is largely complete. The
walls are close studded with tension braces. Jowled posts, arch braces to the
tie-beam and queen-post trusses. Common rafter roof with no ridge-piece, staggered
butt purlins, and straight wind braces over the central bay only. The central
bay is flanked by low boarded stud partitions on brick plinths.
