A timber-framed former threshing barn, probably of mid-C18 date
Threshing barn, probably of mid-C18 date.
MATERIALS: timber-framed, the south-west and north-west outer aisle walls replaced in later brickwork. Tiled roof.
PLAN: five bays, aisled on the south-west and north-east sides.
EXTERIOR: the south-west and north-west outer aisle walls have been replaced in later brickwork. The steeply-pitched hipped roof is tiled and has a hipped central cart entrance on the south-west side with weather boarded cheeks and wooden double doors with large hinges. The north-east side retains the lower central entrance.
INTERIOR: jowled aisle posts with knees, angled queen struts, staggered purlins and rafters without a ridge-piece. The aisle posts are joined by midrails which have studs, and the central lower entrance in the north-east side also has a midrail and is close-studded above. The end walls have higher midrails with a central post reaching up to the midrail and above it diagonal tension braces to the corners. Three of the four diagonal supports either side of the central threshing floor survive. The outer aisle walls are close-studded with diagonal braces.
This is a former threshing barn. The barn is shown on the 1875 First Edition Ordnance Survey map as part of Park Farm and its footprint has not changed since.
This former threshing barn, probably of mid-C18 date, is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Intactness: retaining a substantially intact timber frame of good scantling including aisles on all sides, a staggered purlin roof and hipped cart entrance
* Specialist functional interest: three of the four diagonal supports on each side of the threshing floor survive, a fairly rare survival
* Group value: Park Farmhouse to the north is listed Grade II
