SY 78 SW POXWELL MANOR FARM

9/63 Barn, at north
west corner of farmyard
26.1.56 (Formerly listed as Barn
120 yds N of Poxwell House)
GV II*

Barn, at north west corner of farmyard. Late C16. Squared rubble
walls. Clay tile roof with stone slates at the eaves, the north
and south ends are gabled with plain copings and finials. The west
porch has a hipped roof. The larger east porch is longer of 2
storeys and gabled. In the west wall is a blocked doorway with
chamfered jambs and four centred head. In the south end wall is
a small window of two 2 centred lights set in a rectangular recess
below a quatrefoil with sunk spandrels. The whole is cut from one
stone and is probably reused from an earlier building of C16.
Interior: the roof is carried on five trusses, of which four are
of jointed raised cruck type, with the posts that form the lower
parts of the cruck blades standing on short lengths of timber built
into the walls. The fifth truss is built in two tiers; the main jointed
crucks do not reach to the apex but are continued by secondary
crucks standing on a collar. The dates 1772 and 1773 scratched on the
stonework may give the date of repairs to the roof. (R.C.H.M. Dorset
II, p. 262 (4). Figure Pt I, p. (xv)).
