TQ 64 NW
6/62 Barn approx 35m north west
- of the Old Farmhouse, Style


Barn. Late C17, partly rebuilt in the mid/late C19. A small part is
weatherboarded over probably C17 timber-framing, the rest is C19 brick tending
towards Flemish bond, red brick to rear and ochre-coloured to the front. Peg-
tile roof.

Plan: The barn faces south east, towards the farmhouse. The main barn is
split into 3 compartments under a continuous hayloft. At the right (north
east) end is a room containing the stair up to the hayloft. Slightly left of
centre is a cartshed and the left end section is part of a stable along with
the lower and narrower range projecting from that end. It is not clear how
the C17 barn worked since its walls have been so much rebuilt in the c19. The
original framed walls survive only at first floor level on the front and end

Exterior: Irregular front. The ground floor level is brick, the first floor
is weatherboarded. All the ground floor openings have segmental arches over.
There are 2 doorways; to right into the barn and a wider one to left to the
cartshed. In both cases the brick surround stands proud of the wall (there is
a similar small doorway into the stable wing alongside). The windows are
fixed pane with glazing bars. 2 similar windows on the first floor and a
hayloft loading hatch to right. The roof is half-hipped each end. The stable
extension is gable-ended.

Interior: The hay floor is supported on plain C19 crossbeams and joists. C17
4-bay roof of tie-beam trusses. The arch braces have been removed. Trusses
have staggered butt purlins and raking struts. Most of the common rafters are
