Listing Text

TM 38 NE
Barn immediately to
- the north of Shoe Devil

Barn. C16 and C17. Timber-framed and weatherboarded with corrugated iron
roof. 5 bays. The 3 western bays form the original barn, with a high entry
in the middle bay. Very substantial widely-spaced full height studs; trusses
with straight tie-beams and unusually long arched braces morticed very low
down into the posts. Similar long braces are halved into studding in the end
walls. Queen-post roof in 3 bays, with the queen-posts braced to the purlins
on one side only. The 2 eastern bays were added in the early C17, and
originally had an upper floor, now removed, and a range of diamond-mullioned
windows, for which there are housing in the north and south wallplates and in
the tie-beam at the east end, while the posts of the open truss have empty
mortices for the window sills. This part of the roof, in 3 bays, has 2 rows
of stepped butt purlins. There are arched braces to the tie-beam. It seems
likely that these 2 bays were added for a workshop of some sort.
