truss is closed and is weathered on the south side. The framing is well
carpentered and of substantial scantling. The spurs, middle rail and king-post
rising from the collar to the ridge are visible but access to the roof was not
possible so that the jointing at the apex was not inspected. Single tier of
inclined through-purlins extending northwards. Inserted C17 partition wall and
floor into possible former open-hall.
