Barn near Peasemore House

This barn stands at right angles near the soutern boundary of Peasemore, in Berkshire. Peasemore is a medieval settlement, but this barn probably dates to the seventeenth century.

It is a ten bay, timber-framed, barn with later outshuts,making it look like an aisled barn. The main barn is thatched and the outshuts or aisles are tiled with clay tiles. It has clapboard cladding. There are Kent style porches on the farmyard side and deeper wagon porches on the front.

It backs onto a farmyard with cowsheds and other buildings round it. It is no longer in agricultural use, but when I visited it was let to a mail service.
