GV II
Barn. C17 with earlier origins. Coursed squared stone and rubble brought to course;
stone slate roof. 5 bays with front aisle. North-east front: brick outshut extension
on left (not of interest) masks central recessed cart entry with socketed wood lintel
and shallow Tudor-arched doorway to either side into aisles. Left aisle has a
chamfered light, right aisle one single and one tripled round-arched vent. Shaped
kneelers, coping. Rear: right bay of rubble. Central chamfered quoined basket-arched
doorway with datestone above reading '1663 IMM', possibly reused (as of different
stone); chamfered arched vent to left. Right return: chamfered quoined Tudor-arched
doorway on left; arched vents; chamfered owl hole in gable. Interior: 5 trusses with
post braced to arcade plate and tiebeams and braces from front wall to tie beams
supported on corbels. A queen-strut, a king-post and 2 open trusses with trenched
purlins and old rafters. The 2 outer tiebeams have mortices for studs, indicating their
original use in closing trusses, and the arcade plate also has mortices for studs
indicating its original use as a wall plate. These factors and the 2 sets of carpen-
ters marks on the trusses indicate that the barn is a rebuilding of a timber-framed
barn, which the RCHM report suggests was of at least 7 bays and single-aisled.
RCHM(E) Report (31470).
