HEDDON-ON-THE-WALL EAST HEDDON NZ 16 NW
20/135 Byre and shelter sheds north of 28.4.69 East Heddon
Probably a house originally, now shelter sheds and granary. C16 or early C17; extended and altered C18 and early C19. Random rubble with Welsh slate and stone slate roof. 2 storeys, approx 7O ft long. Walls 3 - 4 ft. thick. Irregular openings and fenestration including on the ground floor two C18 shallow brick segmental arches and two C19 stone segmental arches, also one blocked small C16 window with roll-moulded surround. On the 1st floor one small window with roll- moulded surround, 2 early C17 windows with multi-moulded surrounds and two with double-chamfered surrounds. Steeply-pitched gabled roof with flat coping and kneelers on right gable.
Interior: on ground floor a very large blocked segmental-arched fireplace; also massive ceiling beams, some of them re-set. On the 1st floor, at the east end two C17 fireplaces, one now blocked, the other a door into later building behind. 9-bay roof with heavy timbers, some of them re-used; all are principal- rafter trusses with tie beams but they differ considerably in detail. The first, to the east has a thin saddle and ridge post supporting the ridge piece; the 2nd has a saddle; the 3rd a king post; 4th - 8th have collar beams and the principals joined with a notched lap joint; the 9th, now embedded in C19 end wall, has queen struts.
There appears to be no documentary evidence for the origins and original function of the building.
