The Cruck Barn

A fine example of a 15th century cruck barn.

Moved here from its original site on the edge of Towneley Park in Burnley some years ago, it could be as old as 15th century and importantly the blades on the three cruck frames have chamfered internal edges which implies that they were used for a building of some status.

Unfortunately not all the building has survived although the three cruck frames, the stylobates upon which the frames rest and the doorway with the splayed jambs and head are original.

Plans are now underway to make this into an additional and larger function room suitable for weddings and other private functions as well as public events.
