Full Description

Barn at Elms Farm, Duffield Road, Little Eaton, a late 18th century building. The building was subject to an historic fabric survey carried out in 2006: 'The barn range comprises a 7-bay long barn and an adjoining, slightly narrower 4-bay stable. The range is built of coursed squared gritstone and gritstone dressings, with brick used on some internal walls and for lining,… the now internal south end wall of the barn features ventilation slits and a delivery door in its gable, showing that it was once an external end wall and that the stable was added later. The barn has identical large opposing near central double doors under semi-circular arches on both west and east sides, these would have allowed for good draught for winnowing on the intervening threshing floor…' (1) From the National Heritage List for England: 'PARISH OF LITTLE EATON DUFFIELD ROAD SK 34 SE 1/64 (West Side) 24.11.77 Barn with Byres and Hay Lofts, south east of 'The Elms' GV II Barn with byres forming the east side of the crew yard.
