16/102 Long Barn


Former farmhouse. Probably C16 origins with early C17 and C18 alterations, thorough
renovations of the 1970s. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings ;
thatched roof, gabled at ends ; right end stack, 2 rear lateral stacks.
Plan: Evidence of a 3 room and through passage plan of the early C17, lower end
parlour to the left, now heated by a rear lateral stack but formerly heated by a
front lateral stack dismantled in the 1970s. Other 1970s alterations include the
removal of the partition between the 2 higher end rooms and enlarging the passage
into a stair hall. The roof timbers appear to be late C18 or C19 but the re-use of
some smoke-blackened timbers suggesting that the house may have originated as a late
medieval open hall.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 5 window front, gable end to the road, the
eaves thatch eyebrowed over 4 of the first floor windows. C20 porch into stair hall
to left of centre, French window to left of porch. C20 1-, 2- and 3-light timber
casements with glazing bars.
Interior: The lower end parlour has an urn-stopped ovolo-moulded crossbeam, partly
dressed off, and exposed joists ; the rear lateral stack with a fireplae with a
cambered lintel. The room to the right of the entrance hall has an open fireplace,
reduced in size, with a chamfered lintel and a cream oven.
Roof: Probably late C18 or C19 pegged roof trusses with some re-used sooted rafters
and battens.
In spite of the C20 alterations, Long Barn is important for group value in the
village being one of number of early traditional houses, gable end to the road.
