Farm outbuilding. Late C16, with C19 additions and C20 alterations. Coursed rubble Coal Measures Sandstone beneath a C20 corrugated sheeting roof. 6-bay cruck-framed range with a single C19 addition at the south-east end. North-east elevation of a single storey, with off-centre doorway beneath a crude segmental arched head. 2-bay offshut to north-west, and a 2-tier series of 5 vents to the south, beyond which are 2 further segmental arch headed doorways, all with plain planked doors. North-west gable with cruck trusses fully exposed, and infilled with modern sheeting. Raised walkway to north-east front, constructed of massive horizontal stone posts. Rear elevation with main doorway opposite that to the front elevation, with 2 other doorways with plain heads. 4 taking-in doors at eaves level. INTERIOR: 7 cruck trusses supporting a single purlin roof rise from padstones which are visible in the interior walling. All trusses appear to have had tie and collar beams. 3 trusses have yokes, 2 are cross-lapped, at the apex and 2 trusses support the ridge directly. All trusses retain at least one windbrace on either side, except for one central truss, where a brace survives on one side only. The exposed truss at the north-west end, and an exposed section of wallplate within the offshut, suggest that timber walling preceded the stonework. Two extant studs confirm this. The majority of rafters are C20 softwood. Dendrochronological dating by the university of Nottingham in 1992 produced a likely date of construction of 1602. Listing NGR: SK3313070968
