GV II

Barn. C16, altered-in C17 and C19. Timber framed, weatherboarded, with some red brick in English bond, roofed mainly with slate, with valleys of handmade red plain tiles. 3 bays aligned NW-SE, with C17 midstrey to SW. C19 lean-to extension in S angle. Jowled posts, curved braces trenched outside heavy studding in NE wall, primary straight bracing with heavy studding in SW wall and midstrey. Grooves for original infill of wattle and daub, removed. 2 edge-halved and bridled scarfs in NE wallplate, indicating the removal of an earlier midstrey on that side. NW end infilled with brickwork, bricks of various sizes re-used with lime mortar. Mortices for arched braces to tiebeams, removed. Main roof rebuilt in C17. The midstrey is of C17 construction, taller than the main building, with jowled posts, and some smoke-blackened rafters from a medieval hall re-used, pegged at the apices, with clasped purlins. The inner tiebeams of the main building have been tusk-tenoned through the inner posts of the midstrey, effectively treated as anchor-beams, a rare construction. Threshing floor of small bricks set on edge in middle bay and midstrey; the floor of the outer bays treated with bitumen.
