5/70 Great Barn at Elslack
Hall Farm (formerly
listed as Barn at
10.9.54 Elslack Hall)
Large barn, 1672. Coursed rubble with stone slate roof. Very long but entirely
rectangular and quite narrow. Quoins to left hand end but right hand gable recently
rebuilt. The fabric is mainly original for a section near the centre with
sliding door. The major openings are: chamfered doorway partly formed from quoins;
doorway with head of 2 stones making Tudor arch; 2 chamfered cart entries with
elliptical heads, the first of which is answered by another opposite. Breathers.
Over the first cart entry is an inscribed stone with RB (for Benson?) and date.
The rear wall is obscured by cattle sheds. Inside the barn has been subdivided
by stone walls and the roof renewed with sawn trusses to the southern part, but
heavy king-post trusses with angle struts remain at northern end.
