18/07/63 building approx 15 metres S.
(Formerly listed as Barn at
Temple Farm)

Barn and farm building, now hall and studio. C18 with C15 elements. Limestone
rubble with ashlar dressings; plain-tile and Welsh slate roofs with
weatherboarded gables. 2 ranges at right-angles linked by a short lower range.
Barn range of 6-bays, 5 of which are probably early C18 with central porch,
full-height opposed doors and slit windows. End bay is part of a medieval
building, probably the east end of a chapel. In the north wall a C15 4-centre
arched doorway cuts into the 2-course weathering of an earlier plinth, with a
mutilated window above. The east gable wall, rising from a low plinth, contains
the blocked lower part of a 3-light window with wide central light, possibly
C15. A sill-level string returns around a deep buttress to right. Doorways are
now blocked and porch is flanked by C20 lean-to structures. The 3-bay building
linked to the barn has a small central doorway with a dormer door above, and
blocked slit windows. A quoin to left is inscribed WC/1751. Interiors: Barn
structure is now cased and not visible. 3-bay building has 2 heavy trusses with
curved under-principals and 2 rows of trenched purlins. 2 bays of the loft
floor survive. The building is on the site of a preceptory of The Knights
Templars, later transfered to The Knights Hospitallers of St. John.
