5/36 Barn to the east of
- Blackthorpe Farmhouse

- II

Barn. Late C15/early C16. Timber-framed, weatherboarded, thatched. A single
aisle along the east side. 7 bays, with high entrance doors at each end of
the central bay. Very substantial studding, with a middle rail to the west
wall. Trusses with long arched braces, some replaced by bolted knees; arched
braces also from the back of the main posts to the side ties of the aisle.
Main components with assembly marks; edge-halved and bridled scarf joints to
the arcade- and wall-plate. The roof, which is of very light-weight
construction, has one row of clasped purlins and no principal rafters, and may
be a later replacement: it has extensive modern strutting.
