Stockbridge Farm Barn - Dorset

The barn at Stockbridge Farm near Sherborne in Dorset is a nine bay barn built in the late sixteenth or early seventeenth century. It has a central midstrey with a hipped-roof wagon porch. There is an outshut on either side of this.

Inside, the roof is supported on jointed cruck trusses standing on a low stone plinth. The purlins are supported by collar-beams with  curved angle-braces and one tier of wind-bracing between the second and third purlins.

The barn is now for hire as a wedding venue.
