Aisled barn. Probably early C18. Random rubble, dressed quoins, stone
slate roof. Orientated east/west. North elevation has tall cart entry
with composite jambs and wooden lintel. To left, mistal doorway with
monolithic jambs. To either side of cart entry, 2 arrow-slit ventilators
under eaves. Coped gables with kneelers. Rear has cart entry with inner
porch set within a portal of the aisle. Composite jambs, wooden lintel,
harr-hung door. Doorways in re-entrant angle to mistals. Left hand return
wall has breather holes, through-stones and arrow slit to apex.

Interior: 4 bays with good oak roof. Angle-strut trusses with crossed
principals with straight set ridge. Those either side of threshing floor
are carried on tall stone piers with chamfered capitals. The easternmost
truss is carried on tall concave posts on padstones, braced to ridge and
with aisle-ties and arcade plate resting on stone pier. Some reused timbers
with ½ lap-joints. This gives 2 bays now blocked by inserted stone walls.
The posts are thin and could possibly be re-used cruck blades inverted.
5 rows of purlins to each side. An unusually late aisled barn and the
only one in the parish.
