TQ59SE WEALD ROAD, South Weald
723-1/8/297 (South side)
Barn 10m west of Rochetts Farmhouse


Barn. Early C16, C17. Timber-framed, weatherboarded, peg-tiled
roof. Front, N, elevation, 3 rectangular units, in line. (1) E
end, with half hipped gable and gablet, low side walls,
inserted doorway to road, with lean-to roof, also blocked
casement window. E end, two 2-light fixed windows above
central doorway. (2) Central unit, simple roof and central
doorway. (3) W end unit, lean-to to unit (2), roof corrugated
asbestos, C20 boarded door. Units (2) and (3) have some cement
block rebuilding of lower walling. Rear, S elevation has corn
drying apparatus projecting through unit (2), Unit (1) has 2
doors and unit (3) has a smaller, earlier, timber and
weatherboarded lean-to below C20 roof.
INTERIOR: unit (1). 2 bays, early C16, aisled closed central
truss, jowled posts tension braced down to a binding joist in
line with aisle ties. Truss was partitioned and always carried
a floor on W side. Raking queen struts to side purlins
(possibly an alteration). Wall frame with both internal arched
and tension bracing. This aisled unit appears not to have
continued westwards where it is now butted to - Unit (2). 3
bays, C17, central midstrey with remains of waggon porch to S
Principal trusses have refined curved braces to the tie-beams,
roof with joggled butt side purlins with butted rafters,
bird-mouthed collars to purlins (inserted), walls with primary
bracing and 2 face halved and bladed scarf joints. The E end
was probably a subsidiary farm building with an upper living
floor when first built. The stable at Navestock Hall (qv)
appears to be a similar, but larger, example. Included as a
type of small farm building that will rapidly be lost by
conversion to a barn and then decay and be unrecognisable. The
barn forms a group with Rochetts Farmhouse (qv).
