Full Description

Barn at Egstow Hall with three sets of "elbow" crucks, as raised cruck frames with collars, spurs and plinths. (1-3) A cruck barn and attached outbuildings, which date to the 15th and 19th centuries, with 19th century alterations. They are built of coursed sandstone rubble, with sandstone dressings and quoins. They have slate roofs with stone ridges. There are moulded stone coped gables to the west and north. The range comprises a four-bay single-storey barn, with lower single-storey five-bay outbuildings. The interior of the barn has three through-purlin stiled open cruck-trusses. The remains of the original wallplate are located to the south, and the eaves have been raised. There is a gallery to the east. (4) Eight core samples were taken from the timbers of the cruck barn at Egstow Hall in September 1995 in order to carry out tree ring dating. However, none of these cross-matched with the Reference Chronologies and the building therefore remains undated. (5)
