Cruck barn south of Heage Hall, Hall Lane, Ripley, a 15th century building. 'One of the outbuildings at Heage Hall, a tractor shed at SK 36425100, contains two pairs of well-preserved 'crucks'. One pair has been formed into the present entrance at the north end of the building and the other, c7m away, is at the centre of the building. Both are complete, resting on stone blocks, and have tie-beam, collar and small collar, with the ridge-pole resting in the V formed by the ends of the crucks. The crucks are c5m wide and c6m high. The remaining roof timbers appear contemporary. The building has irregularly coursed stone walling and an asbestos tiled roof. The owner of the Hall stated that the building originally extended further to the north and contained at least two other pairs of crucks which were demolished by his father.' (1) No change.
