3/35 Barn approximately 7 metres
- east of Glebe House


Cottage and garage, former barn. Late C16-early C17, remodelled in C20. The older
work is plastered cob, the C20 work of plastered brick; roof of corrugated iron over
The building faces west and now comprises a small 2-room plan cottage with end stack
at the left (north) end and a garage at the right end, all a result of the C20
remodelling. Since the walls are plastered it is impossible at present to work out
the former layout.
The front has a ground and first floor casement without glazing bars between the
cottage door and garage doors, all are C20. The roof is gable-ended to left and
half-hipped to right.
Interior: the garage has an axial beam of indeterminate C18 or C19 date having a
roughly-finished soffit chamfer. The roof above shows 2 original side-pegged
jointed cruck trusses. They apparently did not have collars originally. They carry
2 sets of trenched purlins and a ridge, and the original couples of common rafters
survive and are pegged to the purlins. The roof appears to continue into the
cottage section but there the roof is inaccessible. One of the purlins is a smoke-
blackened timber presumably reused from a late medieval farmhouse.
The building is difficult to work out but may derive from the original farmhouse
which was replaced in the late C17 by the present Glebe House (q.v.) nearby.
