7/9 Barn approximately 12 metres east
- of Edge Barton Manor


Barn. Late C17-early C18, possibly associated with datestone of 1683. Local stone
rubble including a proportion of squared blocks of Beerstone ashlar. Some have
incised decoration similar to some in the main house and therefore are thought to be
reused material. Thatch roof.
Plan: bank barn on a north-south axis. It is terraced into the hillslope. The
barn itself is entered from the terrace on the west side where there is also a large
C19 horse engine house. This side has a full height double doorway. There is a
smaller doorway opposite. The basement is a coach house facing east.
Exterior: on the east side the double doorway is flanked by short projecting
midstrey walls. To right of it is the engine house, the roof of which is carried
on Beerstone ashlar posts. The main roof is half-hipped each end. In the north end
there is a stone inscribed HB 1683 and a window here is blocking a former hayloft
loading hatch. A C20 window has been inserted into the south end. On the west side
the left (north) end is stone rubble where the stables abut. The rest however is
weather-boarded timber framing over a 4-bay coach house, each bay containing double
doors. All the joinery detail is C20.
Interior has plain but sturdy carpentry detail. The barn is open to a roof of A-
frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. The southern trusses (the section
with the timber-framed west wall) rest on tie beams which are supported on the west
side on oak posts with jowled heads.
