Probably built 2nd half of 18th century. Clay-walled and
cruck-framed agricultural building; 2 compartments perhaps
originally comprising barn and byre/stable, but now a store.
Long rectangular-plan with clay-walled central partition and 5
pairs of crucks.
OUTER WALLS: rubble footings, narrow coursed clay/pebble mix
bound with intermediate layers of straw; substantial repairs in
rubble and ashlar including some 19th century stugged quoins. Rectangular opening central on S wall of each compartment with
ashlar dressings. Original walling badly damaged at W and
replaced by corrugated iron sheeting.
CRUCKS: fairly large and well-wrought crucks on stone footings
set within wall thickness; collar-beams half-lap jointed and
pegged to blades. Central cruck frame encased by partition
wall, latter stabilised by timber lath frame: W compartment
(?original byre/stable) has cobbled floor, and brick repairs on
inner face W gable; E apartment (at slightly higher level) has
Roof originally thatched, now covered with corrugated iron.
A very rare survival - unique in this area - of a once
widespread building type.
