George Martin Barn, Keyworth

We visited this early 18th century barn in Keyworth, Nottinghamshire during the Heritage Open Days a few years ago. It was restored in 1977/8 and houses the props for the local drama society.

It has a box frame with brick infill, although it was probably originally wattle-and-daub. There are two sets of purlins and the trusses have raked queen posts and straight wind braces. There is said to have once been a dovecote in the roof. At some point a short brick extension was added at one end.
