4/236 Salwarpe Court Barn
about 100 yards south-
- east of Salwarpe Court
Barn. C16, extended probably late C18, with major late C20 alterations.
Timber-framed on sandstone rubble plinth, weatherboarded with plain tiled
roof. Six framed bays on north-west/south-east axis; wagon bay fourth
from north-west gable end, with gabled porch to south-west elevation and
opposed square-headed cart entries; to the left of the porch is an outshut
beneath a catslide roof. The barn was probably of seven bays originally,
the south-east bay of which was replaced by an addition of three framed
bays, slightly lower in height and with a central wagon bay and opposed
square-headed cart entries. Framing: main part has two rows of close-set
vertical studding, some swept and straight braces in the upper corners,
arch-braced collar-and-tie-beam trusses, large swept wind-braces and a
single row of purlins. The later part has long rectangular panels from
sill to wall-plate with long straight braces across the lower corners;
the roof has a collar-and-tie-beam truss with queen struts at the south-
east gable end, two intermediate king post trusses of later date and a
single row of trenched purlins. There is a weathervane at the north-west
gable end. The barns were undergoing conversion to two houses at the time
they were surveyed (November 1984) but most of the frame was being retained.
