TM 25 NE
(South side)
5/89 Barn c.15 metres north
16/3/66 east of Letheringham
Old Hall (formerly listed
as Old Hall Barn)

Barn, C16 with later additions. Timber framed with clapboarding and
corrugated metal covering and a pantile roof. Ten bays. Road front:
gabled transepts projecting at right and left with double doors. Rear:
farmbuildings adjoin masking the walling.
Interior: jowled wall posts (some replacements) cambered tie beams, queen
posts, collars, one pair of purlins and ridge beam with wind bracing.
Arched braces connect the wall posts to the tie beams. At the west end the
queen posts have arched braces connecting them to the collars and this end
appears to be of an earlier build than the eastern end. The walling is
middle railed and at the east end is an inserted granary floor. The upper
walling at the west end has a series of 4-light windows to each bay, now
mostly blocked. Transepts of a later date than the main body, there was
formerly a large central double doorway to the middle of the south face,
now filled with C18 close studding. The attached farm buildings are not
included as part of this item.
