UPPER HEYFORD CHURCH WALK SP42NE (West side) 2/140 Tithe barn approx. 30m S of 26/11/51 Manor Farmhouse (Formerly listed as Barn at Manor Farm) GV I

Tithe barn. Probably c.1400 for New College, Oxford. Limestone rubble with ashlar dressings; Stonesfield-slate roof. 9-bay plan with porches to bays 3 and 7 and low opposed doors to rear. Walls rise from a chamfered plinth and have stepped buttresses marking the bays and in the centre of the gable walls; the front angle buttresses are set diagonally but the rear buttresses are all in the same alignment. There are numerous scattered square vents, plus 3 tall slits in the gable walls; both main gables have stone parapets, but the porch gables are weatherboarded. Interior: The slits are deeply splayed below shallow chamfered rear arches. The roof trusses are of raised-cruck form with paired heavy curved principals morticed into an apex saddle, and with 2 collars, plus solid curved braces below the lower collar. The 2 rows of purlins are trenched into the backs of the principals and there is a ridge piece carried on the saddles. Several curved windbraces, originally in 2 rows, survive as do many old rafters. The roof structure and some details of the masonry resemble the Tithe Barn at Swalcliffe, also built for New College c.1400. Scheduled as an Ancient Monument. (VCH: Oxfordshire, Vol VI, p196; Buildings of England: Oxfordshire, p820; R.B. Wood-Jones, Traditional Domestic Architecture in the Banbury Region, 1963, p20)
