SP 09 NE
Great Barr
8/84 Barn approximately
20 metres north of
Old Hall Farmhouse

Barn. Probably mid-C19 and c1800, with remains of timber-frame, probably
C17. Brick with tile roof. The right-hand part of the south wall appears
to be earlier and is in Flemish bond. It has four windows irregularly spaced,
a door at the left, a pitching hole under the eaves, and several blocked open-
ings. The left-hand part is in English bond and has two windows, the left-
hand one in a blocked doorway. On the north side some worn timber-framing
is exposed at the left, with widely-spaced studs above a rail and with only
principal posts remaining below. Interior: much altered, but ground floor
ceiling appears to be raised, with chamfered main beams and with the rail
cogged for joists at a lower level. Upper floor not fully accessible, but
appears to be of seven bays, with straight wind-braces. One formerly closed
truss has a series of vertical struts below the collar. Other trusses visible
appear to have both straight and raking struts.
