30/03/92 High Barth Barn


Bank barn with shippon. Probably late C18 or earlier C19.
Coursed sandstone rubble with through-stones and quoins, stone
slate roof. Rectangular plan of 4 structural bays. Built on
south-facing slope, with barn over shippon forming 2 unequal
storeys. The shippon has 4 doorways with shallow
segmental-arched heads and dressed voussoirs, 2 small square
windows flanking the 3rd doorway, and a continuous stone slate
drip-course over these openings; the barn has similar
drip-courses on 3 levels, the lowest interrupted by a loading
doorway over the first of those windows. Both gable walls have
bands of through-stones on 5 levels up to and including the
gable itself, and between the 2 topmost bands a large
owl-hole. (A small C20 lean-to is attached to the west end.)
The rear, of random rubble with through-stones on 3 levels,
has a segmental-arched wagon doorway offset slightly left of
centre, with double board doors, a drip-band above it and a
sunk square panel over the centre of this.
INTERIOR: lateral partitioning in shippon; feeding hatch in
floor of barn; fish-bone strutted kingpost roof trusses. Good
example of type of agricultural building characteristic of
Cumbrian farms in C18 and C19. Forms group with High Barth
Farmhouse (qv).
