Listing Text

4/3 Barn approx.
30 metres SSE of
Latchleys Farmhouse

Aisled barn, early C16. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with corrugated
asbestos. 5 bays aligned N-S, main entrance originally to W of middle bay, now
blocked. Abuts on smaller C17 barn to N. Jowled posts, arched braces to
cambered tiebeams and to arcade plates. Raking shores below aisle ties to
sills. Curved braces trenched inside heavy studding, originally with wattle
and daub infill, now replaced. Edge halved and bridled scarfs in arcade plates,
face-halved scarfs bladed at one end and housed at the other in wallplates
(Hewett 1980, figure 269). The combination of these different scarf types in
the same building is particularly interesting, indicating the older and well-
proven type used in the position of greatest stress, the newer and more
experimental type used where it is well stabilised by studs. Mainspan roof
rebuilt to lower pitch for asbestos cladding. RCHM 7.
