Details

Great Munden TL 3524 GREAT MUNDEN WOOD END ROAD (north side) 11/12 Aisled Barn at Mundenbury - (70m to SE of house)

GV II*

Aisled barn. Probably C13 or early C14 (from jointing techniques), end bays C17, roof C19. Timber frame weatherboarded on red brick sill (renewed) with low pitched corrugated iron roof. A 6-bay 2-aisled barn facing S, with later lean-to on S not of special interest. Original 3-bay structure represented by 2nd, 3rd and 4th bays from W. Heavy jowled arcade posts each trenched for passing-brace on side nearer midstray, and supported on plate and spur sill-wall. Jowled wall-posts and aisle ties. Socket for brace from arcade post to tie beam below passing- brace. Heavy square-section straight braces from posts to arcade plates. These last are jointed by stop-splayed scarf joints with under-squinted butts, transverse key and 7 face pegs. C17 replacement cambered tie-beams for inclined queen-strut, side- purlin former roof. Aisle structure extended one bay at W and 2 bays at E in C17 with similar jowled posts but arcade plate jointed by face-halved bladed scarf joints over each post. Side walls heightened in C19 and lower pitched roof built. Unusual survival of a medieval aisled barn structure. Probably built by the Furnivall family as sub tenants of the Earls of Richmond (VCH (1912) 124-26).
