Description

Summers Farm Barn, Long Sutton

This building dates to 1441. In this five-bay cruck barn, dated to 1441, the crucks are partly of type W (truncated above the collar), and partly of a hybrid type which has the cruck blades slightly extended, reaching a saddle. However, the saddle lacks a peg hole for a strut to support a ridge beam, as in type F1, and there is no other evidence for a ridge beam. The roof was half-hipped and remnants survive of the vertical planking that clad the exterior. The porch is later and there is no evidence for an original one. Opposing the waggon entrance is a winnowing door. An end bay was formerly partitioned from the rest of the barn and may have served as stables. (Miles and Worthington 2002, VA 33, list 127)

That building looks awesome. An interesting mix of old wood construction and modern style furnishings.

Yeah, if I could choose a place to live, this one would be on the list. I loved it! It is so well done and really shows off the beauty of the 1441 barn.
