Probably erected C17, the brick nogging is possibly secondary. Roof covering and false ceiling of later C20 date.
Timber framing with brick nogging, sheeted metal roof, brick plinth W side. Large barn framed in rectangular panels many of which have slender secondary rails; off-centre opposed opening and to the S end a secondary set of opposed openings, that to the W side blocked. The N gable end elevation has a truss with diagonal struts and diagonal braces at eaves level.
Some tie-beam trusses with diagonal struts are visible above the false ceiling. Full inspection of the roof structure not possible at the time of the 1996 survey, but it seems that most or all original trusses and some purlins survive though the original ridge is missing.
Listed as a good relatively well-preserved example of a C17 timber-frame barn.
