SE 91 NE HORKSTOW MAIN STREET
7/51 Barn approximately 30
metres north-east of Hall
Barn. C16-17 timber frame with C18 brick casing and later alterations.
Internal timber framing, brick walls, pantile roof. 5 bays of frame, with
aisle to north. South front: 2 C19-20 buttresses, central stable door under
segmental arch. 2 blocked diamond-shaped breathers and plain hatch door to
left; C20 casement to right. Timber wall-plate (probably former aisle-
plate) visible at eaves. Right return, facing road, has inserted C19 hatch
and C19 raking dentilled brick cornice. Central entrance to rear.
Interior: arcade of 4 posts on C20 concrete bases, with long braces to the
tie beams and shorter braces to the aisle-plate. The end posts have been
replaced by brick gable-ends, the south aisle removed and the arcade
underbuilt. Oak coupled rafter roof has pegged principals with trenched
purlins and later raking struts to tie-beams in 3 central bays, and later
clasped purlins to end-bays. Three of the four tie-beams, the two east
posts and sections of arcade plate are re-used, and the joinery is
relatively crude, suggesting a date late in the timber-frame tradition. A
rare and interesting survival.
