7/237 Barn at Hownhall, about 48m
east of house
Former barn, now loose boxes for cattle; probably C15, altered or
rebuilt C18. Gable English garden wall bond brickwork, sides
brick-nogged timber frame on stone plinth: corrugated iron roof.
Four-bay barn. Former double barn doors to right of centre,
bricked up in late C20, with 16-pane horizontal window over,
sliding door below. Wall framing 2 panels high, with thin timber
added across centre of each panel: door posts extend a little
higher than original wallplate, short, pegged studs at closer
centres than in wall below support higher wallplate each side. On
right one bay only; at right end a bricked-up doorway. Half-
brick end of gable shows on side. Left 2 bays. Right return 3
slit air vents below, 2 above, top of gable weatherboarded.
Interior: 1 cruck truss on right, 2 on left; housings for
collars, some cut away. Additional bolted collars relate to new
wallplate. Evidence for low beam in third truss, later cut away.
One pair late purlins, square ridge: timbering for original half-
hips at ends remains behind gables. Form of wall framing suggests
rebuilding: this may be the barn transferred from Collards by John
Holder in 1720. Forms group with house and brick barn (q.v.).
