Unthank Hall Cruck Barn

The cruck barn at Unthank Hall is one of the most complete that I was able to visit in the South Yorkshire/North Derbyshire area. It is described by B. Bunker in her book  “Cruck Buildings”. Although it is unlikely to be as old as she suggest, it is still a venerable building.

Like most of the barns in this area it was encased in stone but originally it had timber-framed walls and parts of the timber wall plate still survive. It has five pairs of trusses with tie and collar beams and a yoke carrying the ridge pole. It has a single purlin on each side and the original doors on one side.
