TM 16 SE
4/37 Barn 50m. south west of
9/12/55 Crow's Hall (formerly
listed with Crow's Hall)


Manorial outbuilding, now in agricultural use. A complex building of C16, in
3 main phases, forming a single range 72m long. Phase 1. 9 or 10 bays to
west, probably a barn. Timber framed: south wall has intact heavy studding
with mid rail. North wall rebuilt in red brick; the two easternmost bays were
re-fronted in mid C16 when court hall was added to north, probably to make a
symmetrical facade: diapered brickwork, 2 original 3-light upper windows in
brick. Roof of double Roman tiles. To north is a C17 gabled timber porch;
the east wall of the porch, enclosed by a later addition, has some old plaster
decorated to resemble brickwork. 3 bays of original queen-post roof at east
end, the remainder re-roofed C20. Phase 2. 3-bay court hall. North wall of
red brick with diapering, some mid C20 repair; south wall timber framed.
Pantiled roof. 3 brick mullion and transom windows to upper floor, 2 intact.
Over a doorway, 4 C16 bricks with fools' heads, now much decayed. Upper floor
structure mostly concealed. C20 roof, originally of queen-post type, the
truss at the east end intact. Phase 3. Six irregular bays to east, perhaps
stabling. North wall and east gable end of English bond red brick; timber
framed to south, now underbuilt on ground floor. Pantiled roof. 2 storeys
and attic, the latter partly removed. Various window openings to north, one
intact brick window; traces of stucco quoining. South wall has several
diamond-mullioned windows. Upper floors have plain joists, mostly set flat.
In fourth bay from end, an inserted stack and solid-tread straight stair.
Roof has clasped and butt purlins.
