1/136 Farm building at

Hammond's Farm


2 adjoining granaries, now farm buildings. C16 or earlier. Timber frame
on stuccoed brick sill, some wattle and daub panels remain in situ, some
lath and plaster internally, dark weatherboarded externally with steep
pitched roofs now of corrugated iron. 2 contemporary tall 3-bays
buildings, originally of 2 storeys, mutually at right angles facing S

diamond mullioned window at the upper level on N wall, but the heavy
floor beams have been cut away leaving the tenons and bracketed seatings
on the posts. Similar blocked window in E bay over door on S side.
Chamfered jowled posts, slender curved braces to tie-beams, mid-height
rail jointed in-line, slender straight tension braces cut into backs of
wall studs. Edge-halved scarf joint with bridled butts, in wallplate.
Inclined queen-struts in clasped-purlin roof. Similar W range
structurally separate, retains 2 bays of heavy floor structure. Roof
renewed with inclined queen-posts, and squint-butted scarf. Double doors
to S bay made from engraved (? temporary) memorial boards with groups of
names annually from 1918 to 1920. Unusually extensive granary provision
in sophisticated timber framed buildings.
