A barn at Pratthall has 2 cruck frames with collars, spurs and outer blades in the main wing. There is one smaller and similar cruck frame in an annexe. (1)
Originally there were probably 5 crucks. Up to c.1960 the farmer and his family lived in the 2 eastern bays which had chambers above them with access via an internal wooden ladder. This has now been opened up as a cowshed. The separate kitchen had very low crucks and a fireplace at one end. (2)
