GREAT MITTON SD 73 NW

12/88 Aisled Barn, Mitton Old Hall Farm, 35 Metres west of Great Mitton Hall - GV II

Aisled barn, possibly c.1600. Sandstone rubble with slate roof. The stone walls are probably reconstructed. The east wall has openings with plain reveals and a door of C19th type with plain stone surround at the right. The wide entrance is recessed and opens directly into the nave. The north gable has 3 windows with plain stone surrounds and a pitching door above with similar surround. Inside are 5 aisle trusses forming 6 bays. Each truss has a king post rising from a tie beam and braced to the ridge (some of the braces are now missing), only the outer trusses having queen struts. The purlins are trenched over the backs of the principals. The aisle posts are braced to the arcade plates and to the tie beams, all the braces being curved. Only the east aisle has aisle ties with principles, the ties being mortised into the aisle posts. The western aisle is narrower and the lack of peg or mortise holes in the aisle posts suggests that it did not originally have aisle ties, a tie attached to the northern truss being a later addition. The arcade plates have short scarf joints, edge-halved with bridled butts. The soffits of the aisle ties on the east side, at their outer ends, have lap joints cut in an 'X' pattern. The lack of any other associated mortises suggests that they sat on a timber wallplate of an earlier stone wall.
