Barn approx 40m south of 5/283 Brook Farmhouse

II GV

Barn. C17 with some C19 remodelling. Timber-framed and clad with weatherboards; corrugated iron roof (formerly peg-tile or thatch).

Plan: Threshing barn on a north west / south east axis. It faces onto the farmyard to the north east. It had opposing large double doorways onto the threshing floor but the front doorway is now hidden by a secondary lean-to outshot. The lean-to outshot on the left (north west) end, if not original, is probably quite an early addition but the various sheds and lean-to on the front are late C19 and C20 additions.

Exterior: Most of the front wall is hidden behind an irregular collection of secondary additions. However the extreme right end is exposed and there is a small doorway there containing a C19 plank door. Above the shed next to it there is a C19 pivoting casement window with glazing bars. The main barn is half-hipped both ends but at the left end it is carried down as a hip over the outshot there. The rear double doorway is not full height; it is blocked and the bay now contains a C20 window.

Interior: The barn is open to the roof. It is 4 bays. The frame is of large scantling timbers. Some bays have large curving tension braces (a couple of them concave) but most are replaced by narrower straight braces. The wall posts have formed jowls and the tie-beams have straight arch braces. Roof of clasped side purlin construction with queen struts.
