COLDRIDGE SS 60 NE 1/10 Barn and stable approximately 3 - metres west of Lower Chilverton GV II
Barn and stable. C16 with C17 and C18 alterations. Cob on rubble footings; corrugated iron roof.
Barn facing the farmhouse (q.v.) to east with stable with hayloft over adjoining to left (south) on downhill side with a lower roof. The barn has a large central doorway flanked by short projecting midstrey walls. It still contains the original C16 oak shoulder-headed doorframe. The smaller door opposite in the rear wall is C19. The roof is gable-ended to right and half-hipped to left. The stable has a C19 door left end and a layloft loading hatch at right end over a section of rubble blocking. Roof is hipped to left.
Interior Barn is open from the ground to a 5-bay roof of C17 A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars and the principals resting on a wall plate. The cob crosswall between barn and stable has been removed. The toilet is carried on 2 crossbeams of massive scantling which are neatly finished with soffit chamfers and pyramid stops; rather over-sophisticated for a building apparently of agricultural function. The roof appears to have been rebuilt in the C18 reusing old timbers and in places is very crudely cobbled together. It is 4 bays and includes a side- pegged jointed cruck truss.
Tile barn forms part of an attractive farmyard group with the nearby linhay (q.v.) and farmhouse (q.v.).
