foldyard at Elsham Top
Threshing barn and adjoining cartshed/granary. 1840s for T G Corbett of
Elsham Hall. Later alterations and additions to cartshed/granary range.
Chalk ashlar with red brick plinth. Westmorland green and grey slate roof.
L-shaped on plan: barn to east of foldyard with cartshed/granary range
adjoining at right angles to north. 2 storeys. Barn: plinth, tall
elliptical-arched wagon entrance to left of centre flanked by single ground-
floor doors with flattened basket arches. First floor: 2 pitching hatches
with similar arches, to left with board door, to right with glazing bars;
door to right end with timber lintel. All arches with finely-cut chalk
voussoirs. Stepped brick eaves. Hipped roof. Cartshed/granary range,
external face forms right return of barn: 9 first-floor openings. 7 ground-
floor flattened basket-arched cart openings to left supported on chamfered
piers; to right, a round-headed door and 4 flattened basket-arched openings
with part-glazed boarded ventilation hatches. First floor has similar
openings with slatted hatches and inserted brick sills. Later outshut to
centre of no special interest. Rear, facing foldyard, has blocked entrances
to barn, and 3 doors, 4 ground-floor openings and 7 first-floor openings to
cartshed/granary range, all with surrounds and hatches similar to external
face: adjoining ranges to south of barn and cartshed/granary range of no
special interest. A particularly large and finely-constructed range of
chalk farm buildings, probably the latest in the Wolds to be built of this
material and the only known example in ashlar rather than hammer-dressed
stone. The cartshed/granary is disused and in serious disrepair (roof
partly collapsed) at time of resurvey.
