Converted barn about 40m north
of Wat Tyler's Cottage
House, converted from barn in 1988. Barn probably early C16 or earlier.
Framed construction on a brick plinth clad in weatherboarding; peg-tile roof.
Plan: 6-bay roadside barn, facing south. Opposed doorways in the 2nd bay
from the left (west) are indicated in the conversion, which has a front door
in this bay on the south side and a glazed section on the north side lighting
the stair which rises in front of the door.
Exterior: Asymmetrical 8-window front, the roof hipped at the left end, half-
hipped at the right end. C20 plank door to left of centre flanked by 2 tall
windows without glazing bars, 3 similar window above the front door in the
entrance bay. Pair of plank garage doors to the extreme right. The remaining
windows, 1- and 2-light, are timber casements without glazing bars, matching
windows on the rear elevation. No stacks or stove pipes.
Interior: The entrance bay rises to the full height of the barn which is
otherwise floored. The wall-framing survives with jowled wall posts. Some
timbers were replaced following the complete collapse of the building during
the October 1987 hurricane.
Roof: Crown post construction with plain posts, some with 4-way, some with 3- way braces. One tier of curved windbraces of large scantling.
A sympathetic conversion of an impressively large early barn. Group value
with the adjacent converted oasthouse (q.v.) and Wat Tyler's Cottage.
