3/18 Barn and attached
complex of buildings
at Oak Farm
Barn and attached complex. Early C19. Mainly red brick in Flemish and English
bond, some weatherboarded timber framing, roofed with corrugated asbestos and
slate. The barn is aligned N-S, with 2 midstreys to the E, and lean-tos between
the midstrey and in the NE angle. From its N end a range extends to the WNW,
comprising wagon-lodge, shelter shed and stalls. Further S a range extends W
from the barn, having a coach-house with loft over in the middle, and a
single-storey wing to each side of it. The barn has a half-hipped gambrel roof
of corrugated asbestos. The other buildings have low-pitched hipped roofs of
slate. The E elevation of the barn has 2 round windows with cast iron radial
tracery, one round-headed window, 3 halved doors, 2 pairs of halved doors and
one pair of great doors. The southern half is ceiled and partly lined with
matchboarding, having been used as a parish hall. The northern half has an open
roof with raking struts from the straight tiebeams to the principal rafters,
tenoned collars and clasped purlins in the upper pitch. The WSW range has to
the N 4 open bays and 2 pairs of double doors, to the S 2 open bays and 2 halved
doors, and is partly weatherboarded. The 2-storey coach-house opens to the S,
towards the former farmhouse (now The Oak, item 3/17, q.v.); to the N it has on
the first floor 3 partly slatted windows, and on the ground floor 3 halved doors
and 3 plain boarded doors. The single-storey wing to the W of it is a shelter
shed fully open to the N. The single-storey wing to the E of it comprises
stables with 5 halved doors. Built by Guy's Hospital, which owned the farm from
1725 to 1920.
