Interior: 3-bay barn, straight braces to tie beam of truss each side from main
posts: collar with angle struts, 2 pairs purlins, square ridge, no windbraces to
purlins. Main walling 3-panel high framing: right gable renewed, probably in mid
C19, with continuous centre rail, irregular members, slight studs between. To left
