East Barn at Nine
Ashes Farm 15 metres
- NW of dovecote


Barn. C17, probably built for Peter Calvert after 1642 (Gibbs
(1915) 26). Wide 7-bay unaisled barn (about 27 feet) now joined
internally to earlier West Barn. Timberframed weatherboarded on
red brick plinth in English bond. Steep old red tiled roof,
half-hipped at E end. Central mid-stray. 3 bays at E converted
to a mill in C18 by insertion of a heavy floor structure on
massive square posts and runway in roof from platform
cantilevered over the mid-stray. High quality chamfered
carpentry to original structure. Jowled posts, long curved
braces to cambered tie beams. Inclined queen strut and collar
trusses with 2 butt purlins in back roofslope, the upper with
paired wind braces. Rafters tennoned into lower purlin but pass
over upper purlin. Many assembly marks on trusses. A fine early
C17 barn with added interest from its conversion at E end into a
mill with heavy C18 carpentry in softwood. Part of the
picturesque historic farm group at Nine Ashes.
