SD 41 NE
8/194 Barn c.75 metres east of
- Littlewood Hall Farmhouse

Barn. Probably late C16 or early C17, altered in C18. Plinth of 3 courses of
sandstone blocks, brick walls replacing former timber-framed walls, slate
roof. Five bays; tall wagon doors opposed in middle bay; north gable has
exposed roof truss with kingpost and 3 raked struts each side. Interior: some
wallposts visible beside the doorways, which have timber-framed panels above
the lintels with straight bracing to the wallplate; others probably surviving
but encased in brick piers; scarf-jointed wallplates; 4 collar trusses with
angle struts, tie-beams with vacant mortices for former arch bracing; 2 pairs
of trenched purlins, the lower windbraced from below. The surving visible
structure matches that of the oxen house immediately to the west (q.v.), with
which it is probably contemporary.
