08-JUL-86 WEST OF LOWER ALLERTON FARMHOUSE
(Formerly listed as:
BARN ADJOINING NORTHWEST OF LOWER ALLE
Early C17 barn remodelled in the C19 and converted to domestic use in the late C20.
MATERIALS: The rebuilt C19 front wall is constructed of local limestone rubble. The rear wall has a stone rubble lower section of wall and cob above. It has a half hipped slate roof.
PLAN: The original threshing barn is five bays, with the threshing floor to the centre bay. It was extended to the left (north-west) end in the C19 and a floor inserted to form shippons on the ground floor with loft above.
EXTERIOR: The barn doorway is to the right with the main roof carried down over the later porch in the angle with the rear wing of the house. To the left are three shippon doorways with segmented stone arches and two ventilation slits above. At the rear the barn doorway has a shouldered head which may be C16. Roof lights have been inserted.
INTERIOR: The roof has two C17 trusses, the principal rafters have short cranked feet and another with straight feet: threaded purlins and cranked collards. The other trusses are C19.
