2/108 Barn 200m west of
- Hall's Farmhouse

-- II*

Barn, mid C16. 6 bays. Timber-framed and weatherboarded (some areas of
wattle and daub beneath). Corrugated asbestos roof, once thatched, half-
hipped and gabletted at either end. Sets of 4 boarded barn doors at bays 2
and 5, on west side. Pairs of smaller stable-type doors on opposite side.
Interior: an unusually finely-wrought barn, with some very rare carpentry
features. Very closely spaced studding, tension-braced in the gables and at
corners of side walls. The half-hipped roof is supported on corner
basecrucks, a feature found in some houses in Mid-Suffolk in C16, but in no
other instance in a barn. Open trusses each have 2 pairs of thick archbraces,
one close beneath the other, a very rare feature in Suffolk (3 out of 10 sets
are missing). The middle rails in each bay are subdivided by an unjowled
storey post. Archbraced collarbeam trusses at half-bay intervals, with heavy
principal rafters supported by raking queen-struts from tiebeams. 2 tiers of
butt purlins with thick windbraces at both levels. A ridge piece (a rare
feature for West Suffolk) is clasped by the principal rafters, and is
triangular in section. The barn formerly had large doorways on the east side
(infilled in C18) and the eastern doorways were enlarged at that time.
Complete C18/C19 brick floor.
