Heritage Highlights: unusual medieval chimney cowling
There are a pair of large timber-framed porches on the east side (which is the only side accessible to visitors). A set of external stairs leads up to a bailiff's solar, or private chamber, over one of the potches. The interior is divided into nine bays delineated by timber posts set on stone plinths. The overall size of the barn is roughly 130 x 40 feet.
The barn can be tricky to find; it is located to the west of the church, down a narrow unpaved lane. There is a National Trust sign, but it is set well back from the road and can be obscured by foliage, so keep a sharp eye open!
