Cruck Barn at Nether End Farm

Nether End Farm, on the Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire, is still a working farm. According to a date stone on the gable end, this barn was encased in stone in 1663, but the crucks inside probably date from much earlier. There are still four sets of crucks, but it was probably longer originally. The barn has undergone many changes as the demands of agriculture changed. When we visited, access to the interior was blocked by the grain processor and the whole barn was covered in the dust from it.

We are fortunate that there are still farmers who have sufficient regard for our rural heritage, to maintain and use these buildings.
