Full Description

A large 8m x 6m two-storey gabled field barn built of irregular shaped stone dating to at least the late 19th century. There is a single storey structure with a sloping corrugated asbestos roof on the south elevation and a single storey brick structure on the west elevation. There are door openings in the east elevation, a taking-in door and two windows in the north elevation, and window openings in the brick structure. The building lies south of track off western end of Water Lane, Middleton, and was surveyed as part of the DerwentWISE Field Barn Project in June 2016. See survey report for further details. (1) The main structure and south extension are both visible on the first edition 25" OS Map of c. 1880. The western brick extension does not appear on any of the historic maps and so presumably dates to sometime in the 20th century. (2)
