3/127 Barns and granary at Wichenford Court


Barns and granary. Barns: c1679 with C19 and C20 additions. Timber-framed, lower panels have brick infill, upper panels wattle infill, sandstone rubble and brick plinth, tiled roofs. L-shaped plan of 8-framed-bay barn on south- west/north-east axis with a 5-framed-bay barn adjoining south-west gable end. Framing: 4 square panels from sill to wall-plate, long straight braces at lower corners; 8-bay range has a wagon bay with opposed, square-headed cart entries in the fifth bay from its north-east end; large double doors face roadside, blocked with inserted small door in farmyard side. Five-bay range has central wagon bay with opposed square-headed cart entries, large double doors in south- west elevation, farmyard entry blocked with inserted small door. Interior: 8-bay range has single, trenched purlins, queen strut trusses at gable ends and to bays either side of wagon bay, other 5 trusses having raking struts. The 4 bays to the north-east of the wagon bay are floored and there are stalls for livestock at ground floor level. A small open doorway in the south- west gable end leads into the adjoining barn. Five-bay barn has double, trenched purlins, end queen strut trusses and 4 intermediate raking strut trusses. At north-east gable end of 8-bay barn is a C19 brick, tiled granary; 2 storeys with dentilled eaves cornice, 5 bays, its main north-east elevation having 6 ground floor windows, 2 first floor casements and 4 hoist doors, and 3 planked doors, all with cambered heads. There is an outshut in the angle with the barn at the north-east end. To the farmyard side of the larger barn are further C19 and C20 additions. It is probable that many of the timbers in the barns are reused from the former timber-framed medieval manor house, on the site of the present Court (qv), which was demolished in the late C17.
