GV II

Barn. C17, probably built for Peter Calvert after 1642 (Gibbs (1915) 26). Wide 7-bay unaisled barn (about 27 feet) now joined internally to earlier West Barn. Timberframed weatherboarded on red brick plinth in English bond. Steep old red tiled roof, half-hipped at E end. Central mid-stray. 3 bays at E converted to a mill in C18 by insertion of a heavy floor structure on massive square posts and runway in roof from platform cantilevered over the mid-stray. High quality chamfered carpentry to original structure. Jowled posts, long curved braces to cambered tie beams. Inclined queen strut and collar trusses with 2 butt purlins in back roofslope, the upper with paired wind braces. Rafters tennoned into lower purlin but pass over upper purlin. Many assembly marks on trusses. A fine early C17 barn with added interest from its conversion at E end into a mill with heavy C18 carpentry in softwood. Part of the picturesque historic farm group at Nine Ashes.
