Barn to West of Loftus


Aisled barn. Late C15, with C18 and C20 alterations. Red brick and rubble walling,
now rendered and painted. Pantile roof, hipped to the east, and with a coped brick
gable to the east. South front has off-centre cart entrance with double plank doors
and overlight. To the right 3 windows and 3 plank doors with above 4 windows. To
the left a very large C20 casement window and beyond a pair of glazed doors. The
central ridge of the roof has a small wooden square cupola with weather vane. The
west wall has 3 casements and above 2 casements. The north wall has a C20 single
storey projection with double doors and 5 casements. Set back to the right, exposed
cobble walling and a C20 door, to the left further cobble walling and later brick
walling with 2 casements and a door. The east front has a door and a single sash
window. Interior. The western section of the building is an open aisled barn with 5
bays of timber-framing. It has 5 pairs of arcade posts, with arched braces to the arcade
plates and the tie beams, these beams support tall plain king posts which support the
ridge piece, most of these trusses have added collars. Between these trusses are
subsidiary trusses with arch braced collars supporting crown posts with arched braces to
the ridge piece. The eastern section of this building is now 2 storey, it was probably
rebuilt in the C18, but it may well contain further fragments of the original frame
buried within its walls. This is an extremely rare and well preserved example of a late
medieval timber-framed, aisled barn.
