2/67 Barn 120 metres west
of East Newhall
Barn. C17. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with corrugated asbestos. 5
bays aligned E-W, with midstrey to S. Frame of high quality hardwood, jointed
and pegged. Jowled posts, primary straight bracing. Arched braces to straight
tiebeams, complete, with scribed carpenter's assembly marks. The wallplate
scarfs are of a rare type, face-splayed, each with one through-splayed butt and
one undersquinted butt, through-nailed, and arranged over the posts. One
tenoned collar to each principal rafter couple, 2 butt-purlins in each pitch of
the roof. No ridge. The great doorways at both ends of the threshing bay have
been boarded over, and a full-span doorway made at the W end, with double metal
doors, for storage of agricultural machinery. A building of unusual structural
type, which by its position within 0.5 km of the Stour estuary may indicate
continental influence; exceptionally well converted to modern agricultural use.
