3/96 Barn and cattle sheds
About 90 metres East
of Eriswell Hall


Barn and adjoining cattle-sheds. Circa late C18 or early C19, altered
in late C19 or early C20. English-bound red brick barn, brick and flint
cattle-sheds. Red pantile roof, the barn with rebuilt brick parapets to
the gable ends; the cattle-sheds have hipped roofs.
Plan: Large 9-bay field barn with threshing floors in bays 2, 5 and 8. At
the back (south) there are 3 cattle-shed wings, the centre and right (west)
wings open-fronted onto the 2 stockyards between the wings. In the late
C19 or early C20 the left and right hand waggon entrances at the front (north)
were reduced in size but leaving the central waggon entrance unaltered. The
weatherboarded range on the west side is probably a C20 addition.
Exterior: The north elevation of the barn has a large central waggon entrance
with C20 boarded double doors and a cement-rendered or concrete lintel. To
the left and right the waggon doorways have been reduced and now have lower
segmented brick arches. Between the doorways small late 19 or early 20
window openings. In the end gables ventilation holes forming diamond pattern
in the brickwork. At the rear (south) 3 long cattle-shed wings of flint
and brick with hipped roofs and flint and brick walls between the wings
inclosing stock-yards. The centre and west wings are open-fronted on their
east sides.

Interior: Only the interior of the barn was inspected. It has its complete
original roof with staggered butt-purlins, the rafters laying on the backs
of the purlins. Tie-beam and collar trusses at the bay divisions and
intermediate principal rafters also with collars but without tie-beams. The
collars are mortice and turned into the principals. Timber wall-plate and
ridge board.
