GV II

Small barn with attached shippon; derelict and severely
dilapidated at time of survey. Probably early C17 or earlier;
enlarged by addition of shippon, and altered. Coursed
sandstone rubble, with stone slate roof (now only on outshut
and shippon).
U-plan formed by a 3-bay range on a north-south axis with an
integral wing to the west side of the north bay, and a small
added shippon at right-angles to the south bay. The centre bay
has opposed waggon doorways, that on the west side (between
the wing and the shippon) of full height but now blocked (with
inserted windows and door) and that on the east side much
lower, with a cambered timber lintel, and anciently blocked.
The gabled wing to the left has a square window offset left
and a square loading door above; to the right, the shippon is
also gabled, and has a doorway near the front corner of the
re-entrant wall. The north gable wall of the main range has an
inserted garage doorway.
The principal feature of interest is the INTERIOR, which
contains 2 raised cruck trusses, both mounted approx 1m up the
walls, with tie-beams extended as spurs, and yokes near the
apex, that to the north with blades crossed at the apex and a
cross-shaped carpenter's mark on the south face of the east
blade, and the other with blades meeting the ridge, and a
raising notch on the north face of each blade.
Forms group with Lower Tower Hill Farmhouse approx 30m
north-west (qv).
