Barn at Picket Twenty Farm
C18 threshing barn with some later alterations.
EXTERIOR: Timberframed with corrugated tin roof and some replacement of the frame, with the wall of the north side having collapsed and partly rebuilt in concrete block. Weatherboarding on one side and one end, remaining end clad in tin sheet. The plinth and frame has been removed in two bays to allow access to a modern lean-to extension, which is not of special interest. The hipped roof is clad in tin sheet. Double cart entrance. The adjoining cart shed is later and not of special interest.
INTERIOR: Five bays and single aisle to north. The wall frame has cut jowled principal posts. There are paired diagonal braces in two bays in lieu of more traditional wind braces. The oak roof, of angled queen post truss structure, has trenched purlins, and is largely complete. Many original split lathe battens rafters remain between the common rafters.
SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: C18 timberframed barn with much of its original timber framing intact. It is designed to function as a threshing barn, and has a double cart entrance, five bays for the storage of hay, and a large central area for threshing. It has special interest for its C18 date and degree of surviving frame, as well as group value with the nearby granary.
