Listing Text

SOMERLEYTON GREEN LANE
TM 59 NW
2/46 Barn 70m east north east
of Park Farmhouse
GV II*
Barn. C16. Timber framed, clad in tarred weatherboarding, with a half-hipped
thatched roof. Against the west wall a corrugated iron lean-to addition. 8
bays, the original cart entrances probably placed in the third bay from each
end. The wall frame is largely intact, with full-height oak studs and cranked
arched-bracing. The framing in the 3 north west bays has been removed. Most
of the original braces to the tie beams are missing. Fine roof with 2 tiers of
queen- posts. At both levels the queen-posts are square, with jowled heads;
there are cranked arched braces to both sets of purlins and similar braces to
the collars at the lower level only. This roof is a remarkably complete
example of a rare type (cf. a barn at Rook Hall, Eye), hence Grade II*.
