the grade shall be amended to read: Grade II* (star)

and the descriptiuon shall be replaced by:

Barn. Circa 1300, extended and refurbished c1500 and with midstreys of mid C18 date.
Timberframed barn clad in weatherboarding with tiled roof. Two gabled midstreys to east side.
Aisled barn of 6 bays. The earliest phase is the 5 southernmost bays of c1300. This has jowled posts,
passing braces to the tie beams and "reversed assembly" eaves to the aisle with side-facing jowled aisle
posts, particularly well-preserved on the west side. Each bay has 4 wide spaced studs and splayed and
under-squinted scarf joints. The passing braces are morticed to the aisle posts and have unnotched
lap joints to the tie beams. In about 1500, the barn was rebuilt with a revised roof framing an extra
bay to the north and elemants of the east side re-arranged.Some new arcade posts and tie beams were
introduced, taking into account the surviving passing braces. The new roof reuses the old rafters of
a simple collar/rafter roof and has new principals with collars, clasped purlins and a ridge piece
trapped above tiny apex collars. There are further mid-bay collars and apex collars acting as
intermediary trusses. The top plates (with halved and bridled scarf joints) appear to be c1500
replacements. The two large midstreys with cantilevered gables are not shown on the map of 1727
by John Thomas but are shown on the 1778 map by Benjamin Chambers.
