(east part)
Barn. Mid C16, dividing wall c1800, re-roofed c1978. For Godfrey Bosvile
(1520-80) lord of the manors of Gunthwaite and Oxpring. Coursed squared
rubble lower walls, timber-framed upper part, stone slate roof. 11 internal
bays fully-aisled at each side. South elevation into farmyard has full-height
harr-hung cart-doors (renewed) to bays 3 and 9. Bay 6 formerly with similar
door is now walled-up. To left of bay 3 and to the right of bay 9 is a small
doorway with pegged timber surround and ogee head. Ventilation slits (one per bay)
with chamfered surrounds in the stone lower walls. Diagonal strutting to the
upper walls. A later building adjoining at bays 4 and 5 is not of special interest.
Rear: opposed full-height cart entrances with harr-hung doors, to bays 3, 6 and 9.
Chamfered ventilation slits as front. Vertical close studding to upper walls with
irregular bracing. Bays 7 and 8 have been fully stone-walled at a later date.
Left and right return gables are fully stone-walled.
Interior: dividing wall between bays 5 and 6. Twelve king-post trusses with struts
arch-braced to ridge. Jowelled posts with lifting holes on stone footings,
arch-braced to arcade plates and to tie-beams. Straight aisle-ties braced to
wall posts. The truss to the left abuts the end wall, the truss to the right is
built into the end wall. All members are extensively stop-chamfered. In the cart
bays the arcade braces are smaller and spring from a higher point to give headroom.
Bays 10 and 11 contain later cattle-stalls.
An excellent and complete barn unique in this area.
