TM 05 NE
4/79 Barn, 30m north-west of
9-12-55 Roydon Hall

Barn, mid C16. 10 bays, of which the south-easternmost 3 were originally
floored over and designed as stabling with a loft above (one bay was united
with the barn in C18/C19). Timber-framed and weatherboarded. Plaintiled
roof. Original doorways at bays 5 and 9 on the south-west side have sets of 4
C19/C20 boarded doors. Flanking these openings, and at each corner of the
building, are external buttress-shafts with simple capitals, carved on the
principal posts. Good quality close-studding with arched wind-braces. A fine
and unusual roof of raised-aisled form, with 2 tiers of queen-posts at each
truss; at the lower tier a pair of queen-posts stand upon an arch-braced tie-
beam, the posts being jowled and arch-braced to straight collars and square-
set purlins. All the main components are chamfered, and stopped at
intersections. The complexity of the roof structure arises from the unusually
wide span of the barn. The rafter feet retain original moulded sprockets.
The upper floor over the stable has massive unchamfered joists and is integral
with the remainder of the building.
