WORTHEN C.P. BINWESTON SJ 30 SW

5/116 Cruck Barn approx 20m - north-east of Binweston Farmhouse

GV II*

Tithe barn, now cowshed. C14 or C15, extended C17, now encased in C20 cowshed. Cruck-framed with outer walls totally rebuilt in concrete blocks; slate roof. Tithe barn originally of 6 framed bays extended by further 3 or 4 bays to north-east in C17; whole encased in C20 cowshed. Surrounded by late C20 farmbuildings to north and south. Interior: 7 massive true cruck trusses, 4 to south-west with evidence for arch bracing, although bracing itself now survives to only one truss, V- struts from collars and mortices for trenched double purlins; 3 crucks to north-east are less substantial without arch bracing and the 2 north- easternmost appear to have undergone some reconstruction with inserted tie beams. Final 3 trusses to north-east are probably C17 and have long raking struts from tie beams to principal rafters. Evidence for north-east gable end destroyed by late C20 rebuilding. Graded II* as a remarkable survival of a medieval agricultural building, not commonly found in Shropshire. Alcock (1981) p.145.
