SO 27 NE CLUN C.P. B 4368
(South side)

6/36 Barn adjoining Lower
21/3/68 Spoad Farmhouse to
North-east (formerly
listed as Barn adjoining
Lower Spoad


Barn. Probably C14 or C15 with mid-to-late C19 and C20 alterations
and additions. Timber framed, of cruck construction, with weather-
boarded gable-end to east; walls rebuilt and eaves raised in coursed
limestone rubble and concrete block; slate and corrugated iron roof.
2 framed bays with later lean-to aisles. 2 pairs of large boarded
doors to East, blank wall to North. Interior: 2 full cruck trusses
(that to East minus tie-beam) with collars and Alcock apex-type B.
The barn extends uninterruptedly into the small barn adjoining Lower
Spoad Farmhouse to North (q. v.). This barn is graded II* because
of its fine cruck construction and because it forms part of a very
important group (Cf. Lower Spoad Farmhouse). Alcock, p.96.
