History

Built in c.1780, probably by the Nannau family in whose ownership the farm was in the C18.

Exterior

Built of regular local stone rubble on a foundation which includes quartz boulders. Slate roof between raised boulder gables. The building consists of the main 5-bay barn, with a rear wing on the NE which provides open fronted cartsheds and granary over. The barn has a central pair of doors in a timber frame with central post, concrete lintel over replacing timber c.1975. Similar door on NW side. Two tiers of ventilation slits. Pitching doors in each gable end, and a new opening to admit farm machinery in the NE gable. Added to the rear, a 2-bay cart house, the lintels replaced in timber, and a small glazed window to the granary loft.

Interior

Four tie beam trusses with raking struts.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a fine late C18 free-standing barn as appropriate to a more prosperous farmstead, so placed to allow through draught for winnowing.
