History

The barn is probably of late C17 date.

Exterior

Timber-framed construction: box-framed with principle timbers braced vertical posts and minor horizontal members. Brick nogging, with some rubble in the N bay; slate roof. W elevation partially obscured by later lean-to addition, but the E elevation retains a regular pattern of loft entries and a doorway aligned with a western entrance to indicate the threshing bay.

Interior

5 bays, each framed with sill beam and tie beam braced to wall posts. Most are braced A-frame trusses, with one queen-post truss towards the N, and one of the central trusses uses an elaborately stop-chamfered re-used tie-beam.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for its group value with Hafod-y-Bwch Hall, and as a well-preserved example of a timber-framed barn retaining a high degree of structural integrity.
