21.12.67 west of Church Hall
Farmhouse (formerly
listed as Barn at
Church Hall Farm)


Barn. C14 and C16. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed mainly with handmade
red plain tiles, and some machine-made tiles. 3 bays aligned NE-SW, C14, and 4
bays to SW, late C16. 2 aisles of full length. Midstrey to SE of third bay
from NE end, with catslide extensions to each side of it. Other lean-to
extensions of no architectural interest to NE, SE and SW. Jowled posts
throughout, including midstrey. Heavy studding. The 3 NE bays have straight
braces to the arcade-plates and tiebeams; in the arcade-plates there are
edge-halved and bridled scarfs with face keys, probably early examples of the
type; the arcade-posts have oblique trenches for former passing-braces
terminating at mortices in the tiebeams. An early C16 crownpost roof structure
survives over 2 of these bays, with plain crownposts and thin straight axial
braces. The 4 SW bays have arched braces to the arcade-plates and tiebeams; a
face-halved and bladed scarf over each arcade-post; and a clasped purlin roof
with collars at half-bay intervals. 2 full-height partitions of lapped boards.
2 threshing bays, the SW with gables and great doors at both ends. Some wattle
and daub infill in sides of midstrey. Some brick infill below the NH wallplate.
Machine-made roof tiles on the SW bay only. RCHM 57.
