4/42 Barn at New Manor Farm

25.10.51 II* (star)

Barn. Aisle post probably late C12th (c1174), the timber is probably reused, re-roofed in early
C18 with C19 cart entrance, lean-to at west end and rafters. Timberframed barn, clad in
weatherboarding with old tiled roof, hipped to west and half-hipped to east. Gabled C19 cart
entrance in centre of north wall. Five bay aisled barn, but judging from the carpenters' marks
on the aisle posts (III to VIII) there was at least one further truss on the east to the original
structure and it is not known whether there were further trusses on the west. Interior has south
aisle retaining all aisle posts with passing braces. North aisle retains one complete passing brace
and the top part of another two aisle posts. The upstands of the aisle posts have been compared
by Cecil Hewitt to the Wheat Barn at Cressing which he dates between 1257 and 1290 (P105
'English Historic Carpentry' 1980). Aisle posts have curved braces to arcade plates and tiebeams.
Passing braces from aisle wall posts morticed to underside of main tiebeams, passing across the
aisle ties and posts. Roofhas early C18 queenposts, through purlins, collar beam, some curved
windbraces and inserted ridgepiece. Two bays to the south and one bay to the north have C19
purlins and the lean-to on the west is C19.
