1/260 Barn approx 5m north of
Barn. Late C17/early C18, the north end was repaired after a fire circa 1985.
Low brick footings are mostly clad with C20 cement. Weatherboarded timber-
frame with peg-tile roof. Outshots of red brick, both English or Flemish
Plan: Large threshing barn on a rough north south axis. Central large
opposing doorways onto the threshing floor. Eastern side is aisled with a
full height porch. Secondary cartshed on the south end and lean-to outshot
against the north end of the west side.
Exterior: West side has C20 double doors and its tall roof is half-hipped
both ends. To left the eaves are carried down over the secondary outshot. On
the east side the roof carries down over the aisle and the porch rises above
it with its own hipped roof.
Interior: 5 bays open to the roof. The wallposts have formed jowls.
Straight arch braces to the tie-beams. Staggered butt purlins and raking
struts. Most of the carpentry which escaped fire damage is well-preserved and
that which was replaced (mostly in the northern bay) was done so expertly and
carefully using pegged mortise-and-tenon joints.
This barn forms part of a good group with medieval Tatlingbury Farmhouse
(q.v.) and its oasthouse (q.v.).
