Monks Barn Farm, Warwickshire

Monks Barn Farm is a working farm and B & B. The barn is a traditional box-frame structure dating from the sixteenth or seventeenth century. It is five bays long with two wagon entrances on each long side. The timber frame is in-filled with brick and it has a thatched roof.

Inside it is divided in two by an oak stud-wall, possibly to separate wheat from barley, the two staples of pre-nineteenth century life.

The roof is supported by double purlins and triangular tie beam trusses with raked struts to the principal rafters. The barn has been sensitively restored by the owners.
