7/75 Farmbuilding about 30 metres south-
- east of Handley Farmhouse


Farmbuilding. Circa mid/late C17. Stone rubble with some cob to the first floor and
some brick repair extensive cladding in corrugated iron; corrugated iron roof gabled
at ends.
Plan: Lofted farmbuilding, rectangular on plan, probably a shippon or stable.
Exterior: Largely clad in corrugated iron, doorway in west gable end, some of the
exterior walls missing.
Interior: Jointed cruck roof construction, the feet of the crucks mortised into the
crossbeams that support the loft floor. Some of the crossbeams are chamfered and
stopped. The side-pegged crucks have high cambered collars lap dovetailed into the
principal rafters. Rough plank partition in the loft. Short pegged braces between
the principals and feet of one pair of crucks (at the partition) are of unknown
purpose; they may have been part of a loft doorway arrangement.
An unusual example in the region of a C17 farmbuilding. Group value with Handley
Farmhouse (q.v.).
