Yorkshire Barns

Of the four aisled barns I have visited in Yorkshire, only two are open to the public. Two of the other barsn, the aisled barn at Whiston and the cruck barn at Newhall Farm are often open during Heritage Open Days (round about the second weekend in September).

One of the key differences I have noticed between the northern and southern aisled barns is that the northern ones have a much less steeply pitched roof. I do not know whether this is just a stylistic difference or a practical one to do with snow.
