GV II*

Barn. C16. Large, late medieval, 7-bay aisled barn at manorial centre of the manor of Chamberlains alias Bursteads (VCH III (1912) 341-2, interior view on p 343). Timber frame, weatherboarded on low sill wall. High steeply pitched roof, hipped at W end but quarter-hipped only at E. Now covered in corrugated iron, but still thatched when described by VCH in 1912. Heavy jowled arcade posts with long, slightly curved braces to tie beams but shorter straight braces to arcade plate, which is jointed over every post with a long face-halved and bladed scarf joint. Spur sills join the feet of the posts to the aisle wall and there is a curved down brace from the post to this sill, joined to the post a little below the aisle tie beam. Heavy collar trusses with slender straight queen struts across the lower angles. Single row of butt purlins staggered in height. Forms a group with the house.
