- barn [formerly listed as
19.1.52 Horse Shoe Inn (and)
8.10.59 Farmbuildings adjoining
Horse Shoe Inn to the E.]


Farmhouse, now inn,and attached barn. Farmhouse. Probably late C15
or early C16, remodelled early C17 with later additions and alterations.
Timber framed, possibly partly of cruck construction with rendered and
painted brick infill on rendered rubblestone plinth; graded slate roof.
Original hall and cross-wing plan comprising hall range, now of baffle-
entry plan and apparently of 3 framed bays, aligned east-west and 2-
bay cross-wing projecting on right; further C17 addition to right of
cross-wing. Eaves raised throughout. 2 storeys. Framing: irregular
square and rectangular panels, 4 from cill to original wall-plate to
left of cross-wing and 2 to right with short straight tension braces;
rectangular panels to raising of eaves. Irregular fenestration; mainly
C19 casements, mostly in panels of framing, 2 directly below eaves to
left of cross-wing and 2 to right; eaves hatch to far left. Ground
floor has 2 windows to each side of cross-wing, which has C19 casement
on each floor. Entrance through C20 panelled door under contemporary
lean-to porch in angle between hall and cross-wing; yellow brick ridge
stack directly above. Boarded door to far left immediately under
eaves hatch. Massive integral end stack to right (width shown by rubblestone
to gable end) with top rebuilt in C19 yellow brick. C19 rubblestone
lean-to to rear. Mounting block attached to right corner of cross-
wing. Barn: attached to left gable end. Mid-C17 with eaves raised
in late C18 or early C19, probably at same time as house, with contemporary
addition to left. Weatherboarded timber frame, partly with red brick
infill to front, on rubblestone plinth; uncoursed limestone rubble addition
and graded slate roof. Front has three C19 casements with plank door
between left 2. Interior. Left ground-floor room of house has chamfered
spine beam and heavy joists. Centre room (actually part of cross-
wing) has deep-chamfered spine beam with straight-cut stops and heavy
joists; massive stack has partly infilled inglenook fireplace with chamfered
wooden lintel. Chamfered ceiling beam and joists also to room to right
of cross-wing. Possible cruck blade immediately to right of entrance
and cambered shape of ceiling suggests that hall range may originally
have been open to roof. Roof trusses plastered over at time of resurvey
(November 1986). Barn. Framing visible internally: square panels,
2 from cill to original wall plate with long straight tension braces
and one panel to raising of eaves. Open to roof in 5 bays with mixture
of queen-post and queen-strut trusses. Loft to rubblestone addition.
C20 gabled and flat-roofed additions to rear of house are not of special
architectural interest.
