3/185 Barn approx 25 metres south-west
- of Whelmstone Barton
Double barn and adjoining byre. Probably late C16-early C17, enlarged in late C17-
early C18 and byre probably added at same time. Once-plastered cob on rubble
footings with some stone rubble and concrete block repairs; corrugated iron roof
(formerly thatch). Long gable-ended block facing north-west away from farm
courtyard, with lower and narrower byre with hayloft on left (north-east) end
facing onto farmyard. Barn has 2 pairs of opposing doors onto threshing floors.
Doorway left of centre has been mended with stone rubble and concrete block and
contains a probably C19 doorframe. Larger doorway right of centre has also been
patched with rubble. There is a loading hatch high in the wall near left end and
tween the doorways is the stub of a massive beam which once projected into a c19
roundhouse. Towards right end the wall has been rebuilt with stone rubble and
right (south-west) end has been completely rebuilt with C20 concrete blocks.
Interior is now open from ground to roof throughout. The left (north-eastern) end
is the original barn and its late C16-early C17 6-bay roof survives substantially
intact. It is carried on 5 oak side-pegged jointed cruck trusses with mortise-
tenoned and pegged collars and apexes. They carry 3 sets of threaded purlins. The
right end extension has late C17-early C18 roof of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-
jointed collars. The stubs of the former end wall of the older barn show in the
side walls below the break in roof types. The added byre has a ground floor door
and open tallet, both facing south-east into the farmyard.
