II*

Barn. Probably later C16 or very early C17, altered and enlarged in C17 and slightly enlarged in C18. Timber-framed construction, partly replaced and partly enclosed by walls of large dressed sandstone blocks, with a one-bay addition of handmade red brick on a matching stone plinth; now roofed with corrugated asbestos sheet. Three bays on a north-south axis, with an outshut to the east side and a one-bay addition at the north end. The west side, east outshut and south gable walls are all of stone, with moulded plinths; the west side and the gable have regularly spaced slit breathers; on the west side the former centre bay has a full-height porch to the waggon entrance; and on the east side the outshut has a 4-light window with cavetto-moulded mullions. INTERIOR: the former east side and north gable walls are of post-and-truss construction with square framing and remains of very unusual horizontal plank panelling. The side wall has 3 intermediate posts to each bay (except the centre waggon entrance) with 3 rails making 4 tiers of panels, and the uppermost with angle-braces, the lower panels now filled with brick but the upper filled with horizontal staves (or crude planks) coated with daub. Intermediate posts have been removed from the gable wall, except those next to the corner posts, where there are remains of broad horizontal planks fitted into vertical grooves. The tie-beams of the roof trusses have angle-braces from the principal posts of the east wall and the vacant mortices of former braces near the west side, where the wallposts have been replaced by stone piers with moulded caps; and the principal-rafter trusses have angle stuts and windbraces to 2 pairs of purlins.
