plank doors. on the front C20 casements with glazing bars and garage doors to
the lean-to outshots. The barn itself is gable-ended but the roof is hipped
north end and carried down each side and to rear over the outshots.
Interior: Barn is 5 bays. Mortises in the middle rails and wall plates show
that the non-structural framing with slender straight tension braces is
secondary. Mortises in the wall posts suggest that there were once arch
braces to the wall plates. The full height wall posts have jowled heads and
carry arch-braced tie-beams. Collared trusses above with clasped side purlins
and queen struts.
This is a well-preserved example of an unconverted Kent barn.
