SP 2618-2718
6/101 Tithe-Barn about 75 yards
north-west of the Old
27.8.56 Prebendal
Rectorial barn. Probably early C14, rebuilt in stone in C15, largely re-roofed in
the C17; minor mid-late C19 alterations and repairs. Rubble with Cotswold stone
roof, coped verges and saddlestones, the roof is noticeably racked to north-east.
3:6 bays once of full cruck construction, see pads tones and undulation of (secondary)
masonry cladding/construction; the crucks adapted to form reduced (effectively
raised) crucks, or principals with curved feet, of which two survived the late C17
reconstruction. South-east front: 3 buttresses, irregular; 2-light mullioned window
with drip to left; stone steps to upper door to left of centre; opposed entries to
right of centre (to north-east end); blocked slit vents. North-east gable has slit
vent with lozenge head. Interior: the two surviving original trusses have short
yokes supported by multi-pegged arch braces and formerly carried two pairs of
trenched purlins with windbraces; evidence that the eaves level was lower than now
in possible cruck spur buried in wall. Stone partition wall for floored south-west
end appears contemporary suggesting that it was, at least from the C17, a multi-
purpose barn. There is a theory that the induction of the crucks here (or similar
casts) led to the development of raised and upper crucks and particularly the
principals with curved feet that are not uncommon in this area. [P J Drury, Report
to the Historic Buildings Advisory Committee, (August 1984).]
