SO 72 NE STAUNTON Remains of house in
Barn at Brierley Farm


House. Medieval, possibly C14, altered probably late C16, now derelict. Timber
frame with a small amount of brick infill, roof missing. Open hall house, cruck
framed. Surviving central bay of a once three bay cruck framed hall, two surviving
cruck trusses without collars or purlins but with ridge piece. Inserted ties,
deeply chamfered, which carry spine beam and floor joists. Two beamed ceilings
thus survive,one between the trusses and one outside them partly supported on later
walling. Only one cruck blade reaches the ground, the other three have been under-
built with brick. The trusses and ridge piece are heavily smoke blackened and
significantly more so on the inner faces, thus indicating the original position
of the fireplace. An interesting relic of a two phase medieval house of some
quality. The whole is now encapsulated within a wooden timber and corrugated
cladding barn which in itself is not of special interest.
