SD 63 SE
5/33 Barn at Oxendale Hall Farm, south-
- west of Oxendale Hall

Barn, possibly c.1600. Cruck-framed with walls of sandstone rubble and
brick replacing timber framing, and with slate roof. The east wall has an
open corrugated iron lean-to between 2 wide entrances, the left-hand one
with plain reveals and concrete lintel, the right-hand one with brick
reveals. At the right is a lean-to addition with stone slate roof. Against
the west wall is a lean-to shippon with corrugated asbestos roof. Interior
has 3 large cruck trusses with outriders, the blades joined by yokes below
the ridge, with spurs tying them to wall posts. The southern truss has had
a high collar removed. It is not clear whether the other trusses had
collars or tie beams. Against the north gable wall is a former closed
truss with straighter cruck blades of lighter scantling, a collar which
continues across to meet the outriders, a sill beam, and other timber
framing with evidence for wattle infill. The 2 southern bays of the barn
are divided by an open king post truss with raking queen struts and jowled
wall posts. Some straight wind braces remain, and remaining sections of
wall plate show that the walls were once of timber framing.
