2/3 Barn approx. 40 metres 4.60 south-west of Great Walley Hall, (formerly 21.12.67 listed as Barn at Great Walley Hall, NW of house)


Barn. C15, altered in C20. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with corrugated iron. 5 bays aligned N-S with 2 aisles, and midstrey to E. Small outshut at N end. Roof hipped at S end, hipped with gablet at N end, forming a catslide over the outshut. Roof of midstrey forms a lean-to of the main roof.

Jowled arcade posts and wallposts, heavy studding with curved braces trenched to the outside, edge-halved and bridled scarfs in arcade plates, arched braces to tiebeams and arcade plates. Crownpost roof with axial bracing, retaining the structure of an original gablet hip at both ends, but at the N end rafters replaced in softwood now eliminate the gablet externally. The midstrey is a C17 addition and originally had a pitched roof, but it has been re-roofed as a lean-to, probably at the same time that the thatch (recorded in 1960) was replaced by corrugated iron. RCHM 8.
