Listing Text

SP 11 SE
Crosses Barn

Field bank barn. c1840. Coursed squared and dressed limestone.
Welsh slate roof. A five-bay barn with wide projecting cart entry
on higher (field) side, having pair of plank doors under broad
segmental arch, flanked by two ventilation slits to left and one to
right, and a square opening under segmental arch high to left.
The lower side has an 'undercroft' with five segmental arches on
square piers; in bay two, cheeks are brought forward and carried
up to loading entry under pent slate roof; at first level above is
one slit to left, with two to right. At west gable two
ventilation slits - one at each level, and at east end a square
opening with segmental head over a single slit. Flat coping at
gable ends. Interior not accessible, but light-weight trusses
visible. On one of the jambs to the main cart entry is scratched
roughly 'TF 1858', but this is probably later than the construction
date. A very seemly building, unusually built across the slope to
form a bank barn, and not altered from its original design.
