TQ 64 SW CAPEL CHURCH LANE

5/241 Barn approx 20m east of Church Farmhouse

GV II

Barn. Probably C17 origins, much mended and partly rebuilt in the early/mid C19. Timber-framed and clad with weatherboarding built on low footings, mostly red brick but the east wall has a sandstone plinth; peg-tile roof.

Plan: Threshing barn on a rough north south axis. Opposing full height double doorways onto the threshing floor south of centre. The barn is built across a slope. The western doorway, towards Church Farmhouse (q.v.), is level with the ground but the eastern one is higher to facilitate loading directly from a cart. C19 lean-to outshot on south end.

Exterior: Both long sides have full height double plank doors. Smaller plank door alongside to left on western side and another similar to the outshot on the same side. Also high on west side to right is a small gabled dovecote. Roof is half-hipped to left (north) and hipped to right and continued over the outshot.

Interior: Barn is open to the roof. Its 4-bay frame is a mixture of C17 and C19 work. Both main doorways are full bay width and the wall posts each side are C19 wall posts. Most of the other main posts appear to be C17 and so too is some of the lower tier of framing. Most however is C19 and has straight tension braces. Many timbers are clearly reused. The tie-beams could be C17. The trusses however sit alongside rather than on top of the tie beams; A- frames with clasped purlins and small straight windbraces. Each side of the threshing floor are low framed walls lined with planks and including large raking braces to the wall posts.

This barn forms part of an attractive group of buildings in the vicinity of the Church of St Thomas A Becket (q.v.).
