Full Description

Two barns forming part of a late C19 farm. These barns (located on the northern side of the western courtyard) had been damaged by fire. [Prior to reconstruction the barns were recorded]. The northern barn has been significantly altered a number of times but appears to have originally been a cow house with a feeding trough and hay rack. Windows were located in the east wall…but had been blocked. Later, the stock feeding equipment was removed and a dividing wall erected across the room. This wall was subsequently removed and the building functioned as a workshop. The southern barn appears to have functioned as a stable with a hay loft or granary above. Sections of the partitions between the separate stalls survive, as does the feeding trough. Timber-filled sockets above the trough probably mark the location of individual fodder baskets, while a further wood-filled recess by the door is likely to be the position of a harness peg. Joiner’s marks (and other incised signs) were recorded in an adjacent barn. (1)
