- II
Barn. Late C17. Timber-framed and weatherboarded with clay pantiled roof.
Frame in 5 bays, with an entry into the middle bay on the south side only.
Full height studs bisected by steeply-angled primary braces; in the west end

post-heads with an ogeeform. The roof is in 10 bays, with deep narrow

pared-off, not tenoned. In the end bays, there are straight braces behind the
purlins, and the rafters are bisected in the same way as the studs. At the
east end, the barn overlaps an earlier timber-framed fragment, probably
originally aisled and storied: posts and braces to the wall-plates on each
