4/111 Barn 60m. north-west of
- Abbey Farmhouse
Aisled barn. Circa 1300. Timber framed and weatherboarded; pantiles to main
roof, corrugated sheeting over aisles. The roof was renewed c.1960 and now has
a mansard form. 7 bays, the 2 at the west end a later addition, incorporating
reused timbers. The original entry on the north side, in the third bay from
the east end. The main posts, with jowled heads, have an intentional inward
cant. Their feet rest on low balks of timber, which could be secondary; the
first post from the east end in the northern arcade appears to be earth-fast.
The trusses have a pair of straight braces, and a pair of passing braces,
morticed into the tie-beam and trenched across the main posts and the side-ties
to the aisles. Many of these braces have been replaced by bolted knees. The
braces from the posts to the arcade plates, most of which survive, are numbered
in sequence, 1 to 10. In corresponding positions in each wallplate is a stop
splayed scarfing joint with sallied butts and key, similar to those found in
the barn at Great Coxwell, Berks (see Hewett, English Historic Carpentry).
Normal assembly to the main frame, reversed assembly to the aisles, although
the aisle walls have been largely rebuilt, using sections of the older
