Gunthwaite Hall Barn

The barn at Gunthwaite Hall was built in the middle of the sixteenth century, for Godfrey Bosvile (1520-80) lord of the manors of Gunthwaite and Oxpring.

It is a northern aisled barn with a low pitched roof, stone walls up to three-quarter height and then timber framing to the eaves. There are some fine Tudor doorways for pedestrian access as well as two large wagon doors on each side.

The barn is eleven bays long and now divided in two. Otherwise it is more or less unaltered except for repairs. It is still in agricultural use, being used for animal shelter and crop storage.
