This is a 15-16 century barn which was restored by the Museum of East Anglian Life. The interesting thing about it is the use of diagonal roof braces to give a wider storage area. Up till this time, storage width was limited to the maximum deflection of timber which wasn’t much really. Then the Church started to use braces to allow a larger area for worship, and it became common in barns, manor houses etc.
