BOREHAM GENERALS LANE (OFF)
TL 71 SW
5/888 Barn about 850 metres
Barn, C15 with alterations in C18. Weather boarding over timber frame set on brick
plinth. Roof hipped to the west and gabled to the east, covered in corrugated
asbestos. 4 bays with an C18 gabled midstrey and lean-to outshot on the south side.
Clear evidence remains to show that the barn was originally doubled aisled with
aisle ties and downbracing, and braces rising from the joweled storey posts to the
arcade plate. Also evidence of crown post roof with downbraces to the tie beams.
East and west end walls retain much original framing with downbraces halved and
trenched into the studs. Barn modified in the C18, probably in two stages, by the
addition of a midstrey on the south side and the complete removal of the north aisle
and the infilling of the side walls by the insertion of intermediate storey posts,
girts and pegged close studding in three bays, and the formation of an opening with
a pair of double doors opposite the midstrey. The midstrey has a series of
chiselled carpenter marks. At a later date, the remainder of the south aisle was
removed and the side wall infilled by the insertion of primary braced and close
studding framing with minimal pegging. Over this period the rising braces from the
storey posts to the tie beams were replaced with knee joints and the roof
reconstructed incorporating side purlins, and many wide sectioned coupled rafters
from a crown post roof.
