Abstract:
The Standing Building Recording survey carried out on a Grade II Listed Building of 15th century date at Green Farm, Preston-On-Wye, revealed evidence of three phases of construction, namely: 1. The principal construction phase dated to the 15th century, represented by the southernmost four bays of the barn. Internal evidence suggested that the original function of the building was domestic rather than utilitarian, indicated by the smoke-blackened central truss implying the existence of a centrally placced hearth (although no archaeological evidence of a hearth feature was encountered) 2. A secondary building phase represented by the northernmost bay of the barn, which appeared to a late 17th/early 18th century addition. 3. A tertiary phase of building activity dating to the 19th/early 20th century evidenced by the corrugated iron roof, the reconstruction of the floor of the barn and the substantial repair in brick of the plinths carrying the timber-framed structure. The archaeological observation of groundworks carried out within and immediately outside the barn revealed evidence of extensive 19th century refurbishment to the structure; in particular, an intact cobbled floor surface inlaid with brick drain channels in the northernmost bay of the barn. No definite archaeological evidence of medieval occupation of the barn was found during the groundworks, apart from an earthen floor surface in the SW corner of the central portion of the structure, although this may have dated from its later use as a stable building.
