SO 63 SE

8/34 Barn about 40 yards
east of Bodenham Farmhouse


Barn. Probably late C17 to early C18. Timber-frame with board and woven
infill, sandstone rubble plinth and extensions with plain tiled roofs.
Three plus one bays aligned west-south-west/east-south-east. Two-level
east bay. South elevation has ledged full-height doors to threshing floor
in second bay from left with C18 lean-to cow cots to each side; to the
right is a rubble wall, corresponding to the fourth bay [linking the barn
with the adjacent cider house (qv)], which has a ledged C18 door, a 6-barred
oak mullioned window and tallet stairs to the upper level rising at right
angles from those belonging to the cider house; rubble lean-to extension to
left gable; wall-frame is four panels high from cill to wall-plate. Interior:
trusses of heavy scantling with braces from main posts to ties and raking
struts from ties to principals. Together with the nearby Bodenham Farmhouse (qv)
and cider house (qv) this building provides an unaltered example of a C18
farm unit in a picturesque position against a hill-side.
