5/18 Barn immediately north of Westbrook
Outbuildings possibly originally a house or service range to Westbrook (q.v.). Stone
rubble ; slate roof, gabled at ends, replaced with corrugated iron to rear of ridge.
Plan: Single depth plan with an approximately central internal partition. Well-
finished cross beams supporting the loft and numerous mullioned windows suggest a
higher status origin than a barn. A bulge in the left end could be a former oven and
a half beam at the left end suggests that the left end wall may be rebuilt, possibly
disposing of a former stack.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical front elevation forming the fourth side of the
rear courtyard to Westbrook. 3 ground floor doorways : the two to the right probably
C19 but the left hand doorframe chamfered and C17; 2 ground floor 4-light moulded
timber mullioned windows ; 3 4-light ovolo-moulded mullioned windows high under the
eaves, loft doorway to left. The rear elevation has a blocked doorway with a
chamfered lintel and 3 C17 ground floor mullioned windows (1 blocked). The right
gable end has 1 ground floor 4-light mullioned window.
Interior: some chamfered cross beams with step scroll stops. Most of the roof
trusses are post C17 but one, to the right of the partition, is probably C17.
A more detailed survey might reveal the origins of this building which is important
to the setting of Westbrook.
