Listing Text


8/30 Barn on north-west side of farmyard,
(formerly listed as Hall Barns,
13.2.67 Stonyhurst under Hurst Green)


Cruck barn, possibly C16th. Originally with timber-framed walls, now
encased with sandstone rubble of at least 2 different periods and with
a slate roof. The south wall has a wide entrance with dressings of
punched stone and segmental head. To its left is a shippon doorway with
plain stone surround and a window with plain reveals. To the right there
are 2 low openings under the eaves with chamfered sills and jambs. The
north wall has ventilation slits and a door with plain reveals. Inside
there are 5 cruck trusses with high collars and blades joined under the
apex by a yoke. Each has outriders with straight braces running upwards
to the purlins, and 2 spurs connecting the blade to a wall post. Some
of these posts are buried in the wall, or missing, but others are
visible. Where the soffit of the wallplate is visible it is mortised
to take the studs of the former timber-framed, wall.
