6/161 Barn at Bourchier's
29.5.87 Grange Farm, formerly
listed as Barn at
Bourchier's Farm

- II

Barn. C15, extended in C18. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with
handmade red plain tiles. 3 bays aligned NW-SE, with 2 aisles. C18 midstrey to
SW. C18 large lean-to extension at SE end, and small C19 lean-to extension
beyond, mainly of red brick in Flemish bond, partly weatherboarded, roofed with
handmade red clay pantiles and corrugated asbestos. The SE end of the roof
retains the original gablet hip. The NW end of the main roof has been extended
to form a gable, but the lean-to extension beyond gives it the appearance
externally of a gablet. Stepped jowls on arcade-posts and wallposts. Heavy
studding, with girts in end walls, originally infilled with wattle and daub, now
missing. No original wall bracing survives, except 2 straight braces trenched
outside the studding at the SE end. Stepped and jowled aisle ties. Aisle
braces trenched into them, tenoned into posts at top and bottom. Arched arcade
braces, complete except for one missing in middle bay of SW plate. Edge-halved
and bridled scarfs in arcade-plates and wallplates. Cambered internal tiebeams,
and complete set of slightly arched braces to them. The SE end tiebeam has 2
diamond mortices for the former mullions of vents between the studs, sills
missing. The NW end tiebeam has 4 similar mortices, sills missing. Crownpost
roof with plain square crownposts, one original down-brace from each, with no
mortices for others. Complete set of arched axial braces to collar-purlin, with
a tenon at the NW end for the former gablet hip, approximately 2 metres short of
the present gabled end. Collars and nearly all rafters complete and original.
The original framing of the NW end is complete, forming a full-height partition
between the main barn and the extension. The midstrey is gabled, with small
bolted knees above the great doors, which are C19. Concrete sill inside great
doors. Smaller C19 double doors at NE end of central threshing bay. Base wall
of C18/19 red brick, partly cement-rendered internally, and renewed groundsills
of similar date. Similar brick bases and wooden pads below arcade posts. The
NW extension occupies the full width of the building and almost the full height,
with much re-used timber and an unusual post in the NW wall of inverted Y shape.
The original 3 bays constitute a particularly complete and well preserved
example of the period.
