SO 27 NE CLUN C.P. B 4368 (South side)

6/36 Barn adjoining Lower 21/3/68 Spoad Farmhouse to North-east (formerly listed as Barn adjoining Lower Spoad

GV II*

Barn. Probably C14 or C15 with mid-to-late C19 and C20 alterations and additions. Timber framed, of cruck construction, with weather- boarded gable-end to east; walls rebuilt and eaves raised in coursed limestone rubble and concrete block; slate and corrugated iron roof. 2 framed bays with later lean-to aisles. 2 pairs of large boarded doors to East, blank wall to North. Interior: 2 full cruck trusses (that to East minus tie-beam) with collars and Alcock apex-type B. The barn extends uninterruptedly into the small barn adjoining Lower Spoad Farmhouse to North (q. v.). This barn is graded II* because of its fine cruck construction and because it forms part of a very important group (Cf. Lower Spoad Farmhouse). Alcock, p.96.
