Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust on a brick barn and a timber-framed structure at Betts Farm, Stebbing Road, Bardfield Saling, Essex in December 2013. The work was commissioned by Andrew Stevenson Associates on behalf of the owners, Mr and Mrs Escott. The survey structures are part of a complex of buildings at Betts Farm that include a 17th-/18th-century farmhouse, a 17th-century barn, an 18th-century granary and an 18th-/19th-century cart lodge, all of which are Grade II listed. The brick barn is dated 1897-1924 and was designed as a threshing barn of four bays. The timber-framed structure comprises three bays and the remnants of loose boxes for livestock and is dated 1846-75. Both are curtilage listed to the main complex.
