Late medieval or sub-medieval cruck-framed barn, subsequently encased in rubble (C17 or C18) and finally extended and heightened in the second quarter C19.
Long rubble barn with old slate roof. The primary section (of 4 bays) is at the downhill end. This has a wide C20 entrance at L with boarded double doors to the eaves. To the R of this a further entrance, with studded and boarded stable doors and a recessed C19 slate lintel; small square light to R with ventilation slit beyond. Further ventilation slits to the rear and the lower gable; here a slated C19 lean-to with boarded door in a pegged frame. The C19 addition to the upper end is flush with the primary block and continuously roofed. This had 3 stable/byre entrances with lintels as before, though only that to the L remains; that to the R is blocked and the central opening is now an 8-pane window. In the upper-end gable apex, a 4-pane window with recessed lintel as before.
4-bay interior to primary section with 3 pairs of steeply-pitched cruck blades; formerly with pegged collars and tie-beams, these have now mostly been removed, as have the purlins. A late C19/C20 roof of shallower pitch now covers the barn; the C19 raising is clearly visible internally. 2-bay uphill extension with a plain collar and tie-beam truss (the collar removed).
Included for its special interest as a scarce surviving example of a late- or sub- medieval cruck-framed barn.
