5/40 Barn at Sparrow
- Hall

- II

Aisled barn within a small farmstead group. Mid C17. Timber-
framed and weather boarded with a clay pantiled roof. 6 bays: a
later cart entry in the 3rd bay from the west. Roof in 6 bays,
corresponding to bays of frame: diminished principals, deeper,
but no wider than the common rafters; clasped purlins and
slightly cambered collars to trusses; shallow windbraces to each
bay, and an intermediate collar to each bay also; a deep, narrow
ridge piece. Over the aisles the rafters have been renewed.
Main posts with long shallow jowls, slightly arched braces to
arcade plates and tie-beams: all components pegged, but with
additional later bolting. The arcade posts stand on low dwarf
walls and have side-ties to the aisles and diagonal struts to the
aisle rafters. A few smaller components are reused. The 2 end
walls have thin bisected studs and long primary braces, and may
be of later date than the rest of the frame.
