SD50NW ELMERS GREEN LANE 783-1/2/11 (East side (off)) 29/06/89 Barn 20 metres north of Felton's Farmhouse

GV II

Barn and shippon range; now stable and store. Probably late C16, enlarged and altered in C17 and later. Coursed squared sandstone rubble, stone slate roof. Rectangular 5-bay plan on east-west axis, plus added stable at west end. An impressively long stone range with opposed waggon entrances in the 3rd bay, some slit breathers to the right of this, 4 square-headed doorways to the right-hand half and 2 square loading doors above these; and, at the left end, a square headed doorway to the added stable and a recent buttress at the junction. The principal features of interest are in the INTERIOR, which has 2 full cruck trusses defining the 4th bay. The first of these (forming the right-hand side of the central threshing area) appears to have been the former west gable end of the building: the blades have vacant mortices of a former sill and a former rail, the outer ends of a severed tie-beam, and a collar and yoke both with stave sockets in the soffits, and the blades are weathered on the west face. The second cruck truss has more strongly curved blades, short cruck-ties, a tie-beam with post spurs, and a yoke. Both trusses have dorsals, and carry chamfered purlins, that on the north side with an up-windbrace to the west truss and the vacant mortice of a former downbrace. The heads of former wall-posts attached to the north side of both trusses, and the wall-plate between them with mortices and peg-holes of former intermediate posts, show that the wall was formerly timber-framed. The 2-bay west end has a C17 principal-rafter roof truss, and chamfered purlins; the east end has a C19 truss and purlins. Forms a group with Felton's Farmhouse approx 20m south (qv).
