15/92 Barn about 20m east of
Barn. Probably early C18 and contemporary with the main building phase of
Portobello, the west end rebuilt in the early C19 to present a more polite and
less agircultural facade to the garden. Framed construction, clad in
weatherboarding, west end rebuilt in Flemish bond brick; peg-tile roof.
Plan: A 3-bay barn built on an east west axis, the west end overlooking the
garden to the rear of Portobello; probably later outshut on the south side,
present entrance on the south side into the end bay.
Exterior: Single-storey. The west end is tile-hung at the apex above a clock
face in a moulded stone frame with vermiculated spandrels. The outshut has 5
C19 fixed iron frame windows with small panes; probably C20 4-light casement
on the north side with square leaded panes. Weathervane on west end apex
Interior: Wall framing of light scantling with diagonal braces off the wall
posts. Tie-beam roof construciton with queen posts and clasped purlins, the
ties on jowled wallposts, with straight braces from post to tie.
Group value with Portobello, the rebuilt west end of the barn makes a special
contribution to the setting of the house.
