5/187 Barn immediately west
- of Old House
Barn. Probably early C17. Framed construction, clad in weatherboarding; peg-
Plan: A 3-bay barn, facing north, the roof carried down as a catslide over a
rear left (south east) outshut, which may be integral, later lean-to at west
end. The barn has full height double doors on the north side in the centre.
The left (east) end is lofted, the loft probably secondary. Walls of
horizontal boarding enclose a small chamber with a lean-to roof within the
loft space. The chamber is accessible only from the rear left outshut.
Exterior: Paired doors to the north entrance. 2 doors on the left (east)
return, one into a woodstore below the loft, the other into the outshut.
North door to right (west) end lean-to. Roof gabled at the left (east) end,
half-hipped at the right end.
Interior: 2 tie-beam trusses of massive s; ntling with raking queen struts
clasped purlins and large arch braces between, all posts and tie-beams. There
is a half-tier of curved wind bracing below the clasped purlin. The west wall
of the barn is clad with substantial split logs (now within the lean-to
addition). The loft at the east end includes a curious weatherboarded chamber
with its own lean-to clay roof below the barn roof. The chamber is enclosed
on 3 sides, the open side facing into the outshut. The function of this
structure is uncertain, it may have been a granary.
An interesting C17 agricultural building. Group value with Old House (q.v.).
