Truss 2, against winnowing floor in cartway is similar but retaining the raking struts. Mortices for angle braces from wall posts to tie. Truss 3 on the N side of the cartway has a pair of full crucks, the tie beam now cut through when the later floor was inserted in the N part of the barn. Blades very wide at elbow and tie halved in from S side and secured with four angled pegs. Blades morticed and pegged at apex and trench for ridge. Truss 4 has its tie cut, but retains collar and principal rafters jointed at apex as cruck blades.

Reasons for Listing

Included for group value with Bryn-yr-hydd farmhouse and as an early combined cruck and box-framed barn demonstrating in its trusses the evolution into the standard tie and rafter form of roof.
