3/44 Barn approx. 75 metres
S of Housham Hall
Aisled barn, c.1600 altered in C19 and C20. Timber framed, walls originally
of timber framing but rebuilt in brick with roughcast rendering, roofed with
corrugated iron. 6 bays aligned approx. NE-SE with double doors in SE side
in second bay from SW. Lean-to extension at SW end known as 'the quin-hus'.
Half-hipped at both ends. Jowled arcade braces from them to tiebeams and arcade
plates, queen strut roof. No aisle shores. Face-halved and bladed scarfs in
arcade plates. This barn corresponds in position with one depicted in elevation
in the Walker map of Matching, 1609 (Essex Record Office, D/DU 25), and may
be the same. The only apparent difference is in the position of the doors which
in the Walker map are placed centrally in the SE side.
