OFFTON CASTLE ROAD
TM 04 NE
6/144 Barn 50m east of Castle
- Farmhouse
- II
Barn, early C16 with alterations of lace C16 and c.1800. 5 bays. Timber-
framed and weatherboarded. Asbestos-sheeted roof, probably once thatched. A
gabled midstrey was added to the centre bay on the east side c.1800. Heavy
C16 studwork with long arched windbraces of convex curvature; originally,
walls were infilled with wattle and daub. The C16 crownpost system is
complete, with rectangular posts, 2-way braced. The roof was originally
hipped; the alterations at either end incorporate clasped-purlins. Tie-beams
were formerly arch-braced, except at the southernmost bay; here is a small
original side door, and evidence for a loft and/or a partition suggests a
former stable or cowhouse. A further bay was added to the north end c.1600,
and repairs at both ends of c.1800. The barn stands 30m north of the moated
site of Offton Castle (Scheduled Ancient Monument No.57).
