TL 1307 NE BRANCH ROAD

575/2/10039 Barn and attached wall
at Entrance to Express
Dairies' Yard

GV II


Barn, incorporating earlier wall which has been extended to S as boundary to Kingsbury Manor. Barn is late C18, extended early C19. Wall is late C17-early C18 with C20 renewed coping and repairs.
Red brick wall, mostly in English garden wall bond, with traces of stone coping to plinth and traces of stone course below renewed top coping. Corner has been rebuilt in C20 brick. Below barn, the wall has sloping courses of header brick, raised in brick to form level base for barn. Barn is otherwise timber framed and weatherboarded, with a plain tile roof.
Barn has 5 C18 bays, of which the central bay has a gabled cart entry projecting towards the yard. Additional C19 bay at NE end. C19 lean-to extensions on yard side, with front walls altered C20. C18 build has main original wall timbers, including posts, wallplates, mid-rails and sill beams, some re-used, but altered studding. Diagonal braces to tiebeams. Clasped purlin roof on raking struts, with occasional straight windbraces. There is a blocked doorway in the earlier brick wall fronting Branch Road. Front to yard is at present obscured by C20 metal-framed shelter for milk floats. This shelter is not of special interest.
Barn and wall are of interest as part of the C18-C19 farmyard that evolved around the great barn at Kingsbury, formerly monastic, and the adjacent Kingsbury Manor and Watermill.
