south of
Marsh House Farmhouse

Barn. Probably early to late C18. Sandstone rubble base and timber-frame
with weatherboards and woven infill. Half-hipped tiled roof. Seven bays
aligned west-north-west/east-south-east. South elevation has two boarded
openings set in weatherboarding, one to each side of ledged two-leaved doors
with cambered head. The doors are to the left of centre and above the head
are short studs rising to the wall-plate. North elevation has two rows of
woven panels beneath the wall-plate. Interior has pegged king-post trusses
each with two pairs of parallel struts, one pair rising from king-post, the
other from tie-beam. King-posts each unusually have five pegs securing them
to the beams. The wall-framing is in heavy scantling with three square panels
from cill to wall-plate suggesting a remodelling of an earlier barn. Marsh
House Farmhouse is not included in this list.
