4/46 Granary about 60 metres
south east of
Wardsbrook Farmhouse


Granary. Probably C18. Weatherboarded timber frame on brick plinth. Red clay
plain tile half-hipped roof.
Plan: 3-bay structure with an outshut at the front (south) right containing
a staircase to the granary on the first floor. The ground floor has a doorway
at the centre of the front immediately to the left of the outshut. On the ground
floor the left hand bay is partitioned off for a stable entered from the left
hand (west) end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. On the south front the right hand section projects under
a catslide roof and at the projection there is a doorway to the right. Another
doorway immediately to the left of the projection. Both doorways have C20 plank
doors. Small square window opening on both floors on the east end and another
at the rear (north) on the first floor. The left (west) end has a doorway to
the right with a C20 plank door and a small corridor to the left and one above
in the gable.
Interior: Light scantling 3-bay large framed construction with jowled posts.
2 central trusses of light scantling timbers. Each truss has a cruck blade
on the north side only, crudely fashioned and supporting a collar with clasped
purlins above, rather like a base cruck. Instead of a couch blade the south
side of each truss there is a thin curved brace or strut which rises from the
first floor beam to support the collar above which there is a clasped purlin.
This cruck derivative is most unexpected in the south east of England.
There is a row of wooden pegs probably for harnesses on the ground storey in
the outshut. The stable at the left (west) end is separated by a low partition
and has a wooden manger on the back (north) wall.
