side of it pitching doors above and below the girt. The midstrey has the

and 2 arched apertures for drains or dung passages. Pegged main frame. Primary
straight bracing. Bolted braces to tiebeams. Clasped purlin roof. This barn
is in exceptionally good structural condition, and retains an unusual number of
