SD 62 NW
2/150 Barn c.40 metres south of
Causeway Farmhouse, with
- attached pigsties

Barn. Perhaps C16, altered. Cruck-framed. Present cladding of coursed
sandstone rubble (probably replacing timber-framing), slate roof. Four
bays on north-south axis; shippon added at south end of less interest; west
side has wagon entrance to 3rd bay protected by porch with short cheeks and
carried-down roof; various large attached outbuildings not included in the
item. North gable weather-boarded, and below this an attached lean-to
garage or cart shed of snecked sandstone, to the north of which is a long
low range of 4 pigsties with monopitched roof of stone slates, random
rubble walls with 4 doorways. The principal feature of interest is the
interior cruck frame of the barn, composed of 4 full cruck trusses
including one at the north gable: these have blades of large scantling,
collars, yokes, 2 pairs of spurs, and dorsals carrying 2 pairs of trenched
purlins with curved windbraces above and below; the gable end truss has in
addition a kingpost (tie-beam not visible) and 2 angle struts near the
apex. The ridge lies diagonally between the tops of the blades which touch
but are joined only by the yokes. In the 2nd bay on the east side are
remains of timber-framed walling, including wall posts, high rails (below
which the wall is now stone) and straight arch-bracing.
