OFFTON CASTLE ROAD TM 04 NE 6/144 Barn 50m east of Castle - Farmhouse - II Barn, early C16 with alterations of lace C16 and c.1800. 5 bays. Timber- framed and weatherboarded. Asbestos-sheeted roof, probably once thatched. A gabled midstrey was added to the centre bay on the east side c.1800. Heavy C16 studwork with long arched windbraces of convex curvature; originally, walls were infilled with wattle and daub. The C16 crownpost system is complete, with rectangular posts, 2-way braced. The roof was originally hipped; the alterations at either end incorporate clasped-purlins. Tie-beams were formerly arch-braced, except at the southernmost bay; here is a small original side door, and evidence for a loft and/or a partition suggests a former stable or cowhouse. A further bay was added to the north end c.1600, and repairs at both ends of c.1800. The barn stands 30m north of the moated site of Offton Castle (Scheduled Ancient Monument No.57).
