SU 78 SW
Barn and attached
stable approximately
6/193 60 m to south-west of
Hunt's Farm Cottage
Barn and attached stable. Barn probably C17, repaired and clad C18; stable late
C19. Timber-frame barn originally with wattle and daub infill, now with
weatherboard cladding, barn with brick and flint plinth; plain tile roofs. Barn of
3 bays having central opposed cart-entries with strap-hinged board doors and
pedestrian side-door at rear. Stable has 3 small-pane windows and 2 ridge louvres;
at rear stable door flanked by 2-light small-pane windows. Interior of barn: wall
posts jowelled at cart-entry, otherwise unjowelled, with straight braces to wall
plate and tie-beams; collared queen-post roof trusses; clasped purlins; old rafters;
square-section ridge piece supported by apex collars; wind braces. Wall framing has
mid rail and close-set studs which apparently replace former wattle and daub infill
(the evidence for which is the holes in the soffits of plates and rails and grooves
in top of rails and sole plate which formerly would have held the staves for the
wattle and daub panels). Timber threshing floor. A barn appears on this site on
J Blagrave's 1586 map of the Manor of Harding (see Henley on Thames Archaeological
and Historical Group, Vernacular Buildings Research Group, Report No.52/1988).
Stable included for group value.
