Cruck Barn at Nether End Farm, Yorkshire

According to a datestone in the gable end, this barn was encased in stone in 1663, but the crucks inside probably date from much earlier. The barn is still in agricultural use, so the view of the inside was blocked by the grain processor and the whole barn was covered in dust from it.

There are still four sets of crucks, but it was probably longer originally. The barn has undergone many changes as the demands of agriculture changed. We are fortunate that there are still farmers who have sufficient regard for our rural heritage, to maintain these buildings.
