Listing Text

Manor Farm 'Jubilee'
23/2/77 Youth Centre (formerly
listed as cruck barn belonging
to Messrs. Edwin Field & Son)


Cruck-framed building and adjoining former barn, now youth centre.
Probably C17 or earlier origin. Barn and most of walling C18. Some
late C19 walling, and some recent additions. Early walling of dry
coursed rubble, rest hammer dressed stone. Slate roof. The southern
part contains the cruck trusses one foot being exposed at ground level
to right of recent stone porch on west side. Square-headed, part
blocked cart entry on east side. The later barn has elliptical-headed
cart entry on east side and mistal door with deep lintel inscribed in
heart shape: Willm) Oxley 1700

The two cruck trusses meet at the apex and have collars. Tie-beams are
sawn off flush with blades but project outwards into the side walls.
Some timbers have been recently added. Purlins do not appear to be in
their original housings on the outer face of the cruck blades. Two
king-post trusses to former barn, with struts and projecting king post
taking the ridge.
