1/300 Leighton Furnace Barn II

Barn thought to be the 'Great Coal House' of Leighton Furnace, which opened in 1718. Limestone rubble with slate roof. West wall blank with two blocked 1st floor doorways. East wall has openings with plain reveals. From left to right are: a small window; a door, now a shippon; a wide opening to a modern implement store with a wooden lintel and some brick dressings; a wide barn entrance with segmental head. The north gable has a wide opening with wooden lintel. The south gable, at the upper end of the slope, has a 1st floor pitching hole with wooden lintel. Interior. Roof trusses appear to have hardwood principals and softwood ties. The barn seems to be contemporary with the ruined ore store nearby. It is comparable with the Great Coal House at Duddon Furnace, but is in a far better state of preservation.
