Hall Barns Farm, Stonyhurst

Cruck frames support the roof directly from the ground, so you can’t always tell from the walls what is inside. The large cruck barn at Hall Barns Farm looks fairly ordinary from the outside, with its patchwork of later stone walls and garage type sliding door.

Inside it is a different story with five pairs of huge crucks shooting up into the gloom. They are joined together by very high collars and have two spurs supporting the timber wall posts which are now almost hidden in the stone walls.

The cruck blades measure at least one foot by two feet at the base and are at least twenty four feet tall, making this the second largest cruck barn I have seen after the one at Leigh Court in Worcestershire
