SU7620 : Barn at Old Ditcham Farm

taken 13 years ago, near to Nursted, Hampshire, Great Britain

Barn at Old Ditcham Farm
Barn at Old Ditcham Farm
The exterior of the massive barn is made of malmstone and flint with brick details but inside there are six very large pointed arches of rubble malmstone, instead of conventional timber trusses. A plan of the “Paramountship of the Manor and Parish of Buriton”, dated 1793, suggests that the barn was originally cruciform in shape. Dating the barn has baffled experts over the years but it certainly pre-dates the nearby farmhouse and is thought to be from the 17th or early 18th C.
