2.
Barn. Mid to late C16. Timber-framed; the lower half of the walls weatherboarded, the
upper part rendered, with panels of old comb-patterned pargetting. Black glazed
pantiles. A small timber dovecot attached to the apex of the south gable. Interior
with very good framing in 5 bays: close-studding with a middle rail, arched braces
halved against the outer face of the studs on the upper floor, and straight tension
braces halved against the inner face on the ground floor. Jowls to main posts and
shallow arched braces to tie-beams. The building was initially storied throughout,
and all the main posts have housings for main ceiling-beams. At the north end 2 bays
seem to have been partitioned-off completely by a studded wall, and there is evidence
for a former stair, and housings for 2 upper and one lower diamond-mullioned window.
In the remaining 3 bays there are diamond-mullioned housings for one upper window, and
another opening, now blocked, with evidence for a sill but no housings. Fine roof in
7 bays unrelated to wall-bays: one row of clasped purlins and one of unstepped butt
purlins; a pair of arched windbraces to each bay. Although now used as a barn. the
original function of the building is not clear. There is no evidence for heating, and
the window arrangement, which relates almost entirely to the former upper floor, would
not accord with a domestic use. It may well have been used initially as a granary.
The high barn entrance into the middle bay appears secondary. A lean-to addition along
the south end has clay pantiles.
