Barn. Probably C18. Weatherboarded timber frame the front and back walls and the
lower part of the end walls are flemish bond brick. Thatched roof with half-hipped ends and swept down over aisles at front and back. Plan: 5-bay aisled barn with waggon entry at front to threshing floor in central bay. Exterior: At the centre of the front a cart entrance in a midstrey with a hipped thatched roof, the upper part now glazed and the lower part with C20 plank doors. Flanking the midstrey the main roof is swept down to the lower brick walls of the aisles. The rear wall is weatherboarded to the right and brick to the left and with 2 small doorways at the centre. The south west end has C20 windows in the weatherboarding at the top and the north east end has a C20 boarded door. Interior: The roof and timber-framing is complete. The end walls are close-studded and with tension braces. Aisle-posts with large square jowls and straight braces to the tie-beams and aisle plates. Queen-post trusses with collars, common-rafters without a ridgepiece and with staggered butt purlins. The aisle-posts are supported on large timber sole-plates which span the aisles and on which long curved braces rise from the outer ends to the tops of the aisle posts. The centre bay and the 2 south west end bays have been lined with match-boarding to form a small theatre or hall with a stage in the south west end bay. The site of the demolished Ewell Manor house is situated immediately to the west.
