5/56 Barn adjoining Coberley Court


Barn. Parts may be C17 or earlier but appears to have been largely rebuilt during the C19, as suggested by differing wall alignments and materials; slate roof. The early parts of the building are built from random large blocks of squared and dressed stone, the rebuilt parts from small coursed squared and dressed limestone.

Rectangular plan with a projecting porch on the north side and a continuous lean-to extension on the south which continues around the right gable end. Coberley Court adjoining, not of special interest. North front, facing lane: two buttresses with offsets flanking a blocked doorway and two 2-light fixed casements, another doorway to the right of the right-hand buttress; one 4-pane casement and a row of three similar windows below the eaves.

Projecting porch with double plank doors and a 12-pane sash above.

Half-hipped gable end. Interior: 9 bays with collar and tie beam trusses a number of which appear to be reused, the entire roof structure probably having been replaced during the C19: (Engraving by Kip in Atkyn's History of Gloucestershire shows a barn on the same alignment c1712; V.C.H. Glos., Vol VII)
