TM 16 NW
3/93 Barn at Thwaite Hall

-- II
Probably originally a stable block serving Thwaite Hall (demolished), now a
barn. C17. Red brick, with weatherboarded gables. South wall whitewashed
where other buildings adjoin. Roof clad in corrugated asbestos. To north, a
later gabled timber porch and lean-to addition. Various blocked window
openings on 2 levels. 2 blocked entrances to north, about 2m. wide and just
over 2m. high, with incomplete projecting brick surrounds. Interior. East
end has floorbeam with mortices for heavy square joists, now missing; the
present floor in this section is Cl9. At the end of the floored section is a
dividing wall, partly clay lump, partly studded and weatherboarded. The area
beyond is unfloored. Largely intact 9-bay roof with 2 rows of butt purlins
and some one-way plank wind bracing. Tie beams unrelated to roof bays. The
old Thwaite Hall stood within the moated enclosure immediately to the west and
is thought to have been demolished in C18.
