Parsonage Farm, Hurstborne Tarrant

Travelling through Hampshire, I spotted this pair of barns in Hurstborne Tarrant. The farmer was working in the farmyard and kindly allowed me to photograph the barns and the rather fine granary.

The two barns stand at right angles to each other and were probably used to store wheat and barley separately. The listing on the Historic England website describes them as “18th century, weather-boarded timber-frame on a brick base, with half- hipped thatched roof, L-shaped block, with a slightly wider east-west timber frame of 6 bays with aisles, joined at its west end by a north-south timber frame of 5 bays, with 2 aisled bays north of the central entrance. Queen post truss, with angled struts to the smaller arm.”
