metres north of Heath Farmhouse

iron roof, formerly thatch.
Plan and exterior description: L-shaped building facing into the farmyard behind
Heath Farmhouse (q.v.). On the east side of the yard is a threshing barn facing
west. It has large opposing double doors to the threshing floor right (south) of
centre and rear left is a hayloft loading hatch over a small doorway All the doors
are C19. Its roof is hipped each end. An open-fronted linhay projects forward at
right angles from the left end of the barn. It is an unusual type of linhay being 2
bays to the ground floor cow byres and 3 bays to the tallet/hayloft. Between is a
beam across the front of enormous scantling. The lower timbers appear to be
secondary or replacements but those set into the top are original and rise through
the tallet to support the outer principals of A-frame trusses. Roof is half-hipped
to left.
Interior: barn is open to the roof which is carried on A-frame trusses with pegged
lap-jointed collars. Smaller similar trusses over the linhay.
