2. Barn range. Probably C15 with later additions and alterations.
Cruck-framed with red brick and some timber framing. Plain-tile roof.8 bays
in all. 4 bays to left are probably C15. Door and 2-light window to far left
in C19/C20 walling then double door opening, then 7 panels of square framing
with brick underbuilding and 4-light window. Further double doorway. Later
additions to right with brick walling stable doors and various windows
including iron-framed windows to far right. C20 double doorway on right end.
Various doorways and blocked double doorway to rear, together with fragment of
timber-framing opposite the far left of front. Interior. Left half has 5
pairs of full cruck blades including one on the far left end which has been
cut off above the collar. The others are complete with collars and saddles
and have single purlins between with most of the curved windbraces. To
further right a later queen-post truss and on right end 2 queen-strut trusses
probably of late C18. Renewed rafters and plank ridge. On the far left end
is a mid C19 extension at right angles which is not of special architectural
interest. This barn with 5 pairs of cruck blades is a rare and important
survival. (N W Alcock, ed., Council for British Archaeology: Research Report
