South West of Paul's


Barn circa 1000. Timber framed and weatherboarded. Corrugated asbestos roof
hipped, with gablet, to left. Recessed double doors to left and smaller double
doors to right. Aisled, 7 bays. Side purlin queen strut roof construction.
Though partly rebuilt the barn retains one pair of freestanding posts, that to
the west has been re-used in circa 1200 during a Norman re-build. Its opposite
to the South is earthfast, now as when first erected. The posts are double
braced. Various types of framing remain including reversed assembly at the
North West eaves and doubled tie beams at the North end. Roof re-built but
contains original rafters. The building is specified, with measurements in the
St. Paul's Cathedral archives, previous owners of the farm.
