ATHELINGTON TM 27 SW 5/3 Barn 250m south west of Athelington Hall II Barn. In 2 sections: to the east are 3 bays of an early C17 barn; attached to the west are 2 higher bays of later C17 date. Timber framed and weatherboarded with a corrugated iron roof. Earlier part has intact full- height studs with smaller studs interspersed at a later date. There was an integral upper floor of which one floor beam remains and another is cut through. These are braced to the wallposts from above by later knees. The tie beams have been cut out. 2 of the trusses have evidence for lap-joints on the wallposts, presumably for tie beam braces. Intact roof with one row of clasped purlins. Later section has full-height studs with primary braces; the bay adjoining the earlier work is the cart entrance. Clasped-purlin roof.

Structure of easternmost bay of barn not visible at time of survey.
