Great Mitton Hall
-
GV II

Aisled barn, possibly c.1600. Sandstone rubble with slate roof.
The stone walls are probably reconstructed. The east wall has openings
with plain reveals and a door of C19th type with plain stone surround
at the right. The wide entrance is recessed and opens directly into
the nave. The north gable has 3 windows with plain stone surrounds
and a pitching door above with similar surround. Inside are 5 aisle
trusses forming 6 bays. Each truss has a king post rising from a tie
beam and braced to the ridge (some of the braces are now missing), only
the outer trusses having queen struts. The purlins are trenched over
the backs of the principals. The aisle posts are braced to the arcade
plates and to the tie beams, all the braces being curved. Only the east
aisle has aisle ties with principles, the ties being mortised into the
aisle posts. The western aisle is narrower and the lack of peg or
mortise holes in the aisle posts suggests that it did not originally
have aisle ties, a tie attached to the northern truss being a later
addition. The arcade plates have short scarf joints, edge-halved with
bridled butts. The soffits of the aisle ties on the east side, at their
outer ends, have lap joints cut in an 'X' pattern. The lack of any
other associated mortises suggests that they sat on a timber wallplate
of an earlier stone wall.
