GV II*

Tithe barn. Late C14 or early C15. Square-panelled timber framing now covered with C20 weatherboarding; high random coursed squared and dressed limestone plinth; artificial stone slate roof. Rectangular plan with a projecting central porch on the south side; lean-to extension to the left of the porch; former shelter shed runs south from the west gable end; granary extension at the east gable end of the barn. South front: central gabled and weather-boarded porch; with double plank doors; C20 stone-built lean-to extensions to the left of the porch with plank doors and a 4-light C20 steel casement. Early plank door towards the east gable end of the barn; five single-light windows with leaded panes to the weatherboarded part above, similar windows to the north front. Trefoil-headed single-light window; stone grain chute and early plank door within an early pointed arch, possibly reused, to the lean-to granary at the east gable end. Flat gable end coping and roll-cross saddle to barn. Eight-bay shelter shed with timber uprights on pyramidal padstones, openings now blocked with garage doors. Interior: 7 bays with 8 raised cruck trusses, two now incomplete. The original truss form appears to have comprised a pair of cruck blades jointed to a collar beam, with a brace from cruck blade to soffit of the collar; vertical struts from the soffit of each cruck blade to floor now removed; secondary collar towards the apex. Most of the trusses have now been strengthened with the addition of a tie- beam. Internal raking buttress at the east end. (N.W. Alcock, M.W. Barley, Antiquities Journal 52, 1972, 132)
