1/63 Barn about 50 metres east of
Hurcott Farmhouse


Barn, possibly a conversion of an earlier farmhouse. C16 and C17 mostly. Ham stone near-ashlar to west end, rubble to
east; half-hipped thatched roof. Single-storey, 10 bays. Bays 2 and 3 have ovolo-mould mullioned windows of 4 lights,
sharing a label with a doorway to bay 1 which has a boarded door in heavy frame; similar door to bay 4, both up 5
steps: garage doors bay 5; bays 6, 7, 8 and 9 open to south side, with 2 timber and one stone intermediate column; bay
10 has inserted floor with door below, and timber-framed wattle and daub partition - traces of similar partitions to
bays 5 and 9. Interior of west half not seen, but reported is a jointed cruck roof with windbracing parts
smoke-blackened; east half has collar-and tie roof trusses. The whole may represent a single-storey long house of C16,
updated in Cl7 by the insertion of new windows and the addition of the 5 eastern bays. (VAG Report, unpublished SRO,
May 1974).
