3/100 Barn approximately 25 metres
- south-east of Higher Upcott

Threshing barn. Probably early C17, refurbished in the C18. Plastered cob on local
purple-coloured sandstone rubble foundations including large dressed quoins;
corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch).
Small barn on a north-west - south-east axis built across a slope. Each side
includes central full height doorways to the threshing floor. Because of the slope
the floor on the south-west side is raised and therefore could be used for loading
directly from or to carts.
There are large probably C19 double doors flanked by short projecting midstray walls
on either side. The roof is half-hipped at the north-west end and hipped at the
south-east end.
Interior is open to the roof which is 3 bays and carried on C18 collared tie beam
trusses but also includes the remains of 1 original side-pegged jointed cruck truss.
