Full Description

A small single-storey 20th century barn with a ridged tiled roof located on the edge of a domestic property, Raven's Tor. Surveyed as part of the DerwentWISE Field Barn Project in March and June 2016, this barn and Middlepeak are accessed via a lane off the B5023. Built of large regular stone, the 4m x 4m barn is in fair overall condition with some mortar in need of repair. It has a glazed window in the north-east elevation, and a small oblong opening in the upper south-east elevation. The south-west and north-west elevations were not visible at the time of the survey. See survey reports for further details. (1,2) The earliest structure at this location is on the third edition 25"OS Map of c. 1920. (3)
