DRINKSTONE HILL FARM LANE
TL 96 SE
1/17 Barn and attached stable,
- 40m north-west of Hill
Barn, late C17. 3 bays. One aisle on north side. Timber-framed and
weatherboarded. Corrugated iron roof, once thatched. A gabled porch at
centre of north side: barn doors missing. Complete framing: tie beams with
long archbraces at open trusses: straight braces from posts to arcade plates.
Rudimentary passing-braces in aisles, nailed and possibly later with the
porch. Clasped purlin roof. Studding with long arch windbraces (two braces
at corners are primary). There are additional members at the east end, both
girths and braces, at the junction with the stables. These are Roman pantiled
roofed, and retain stable doors (barn doors missing). The framing is of
slightly later type, suggesting the stables were rebuilt or extended with some
reused timbers, in C18. In poor condition at date of survey.
