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.
