TOMKYNS LANE (Formerly Bird Lane) Upminster Barn to north-east of Great Tomkyns

GV II*

Barn. Probably late C13 or C14, repaired and given porch in about 1727. Timber-frame, weatherboarded but with traces of original wattle and daub infil. Hipped thatch roof almost reaching ground level. Three bays, with aisles and single entrance opening into the east side of the central bay, in line with the arcade posts. Arcade posts with well-cut jowled heads and braces, passing braces to aisles and collar rafter roof. Walling with regularly spaced studs and mid rail. This barn is important as a very complete and well-documented example of a barn with a pattern of carpenters' marks which follow a circuit round the building instead of the more common method of numbering each cross frame. The barn displays a variety of unusual and archaic features, including through-splayed and tabled scarf joints, and a reversal in the position of the aisle wall plates relative to the aisle tie beams.
