Full Description

Two cruck barns adjoin Hipper Hall, one with tie-beams, yoke and spurs, the other with tie-beams and yoke. (1) 17th century outbuilding with 19th and 20th century alterations. The building is constructed of coursed rubble gritstone with quoins, plain gables and a stone slated roof. Inside are two cruck trusses, one built into the west gable, with tie beams and yokes, formerly wind braced, and supporting single side purlins and a diagonally-set ridge purlin. A third truss has curved principals tenoned into the tie beam. (4) Eight samples were obtained from the cruck trusses of this building in order to carry out tree-ring dating. This provided a felling date for the timbers of spring 1633. (5)
