WHALLEY PORTFIELD LANE SD 73 NW 2/70 Barn at Portfield Farm 1-2-1972 II

Aisled barn, c.1600. Sandstone rubble with slate roof. East wall has wide entrance with quoined reveals and timber lintel. To the left are 2 worn chamfered one-light windows which have a later window with plain reveals between them. Under the eaves are breathers. At the left is a blocked doorway. To the right of the entrance are 2 windows with plain reveals and a blocked one-light chamfered window. The left-hand gable wall has 2 doorways into the aisles and a 1st floor pitching hole, all with plain reveals. The right-hand gable wall has a blocked double-chamfered window under the apex, 2 C19 windows on the 1st floor and 3 on the ground floor. At the left is a door with plain reveals, further right a blocked doorway with plain stone surround. Interior of 5 main bays. Trusses have raking queen struts and and tie beams braced to aisle posts. The aisle plates are also braced to the posts. Aisle ties and principals run from the posts to the outer walls. Between the main bays are intermediate aisle posts with their own aisle ties and principals, but no tie beams or principals spanning the nave. The northern truss has been replaced by or encased in a later brick wall containing a flue for a 1st floor fireplace. At the northern end, where the barn is lofted, the outer ends of some of the aisle ties can be examined. These terminate at short wall posts with curved angle braces. Their size, together with the lack of any jowling or evidence for jointing with a wallplate, suggests that they are contemporary with the present stone walling and are not evidence for earlier timber walls.
