Summary. In March 2015 the Colchester Archaeological Trust undertook an evaluation on the site of a 15th-century barn at Lady Knights Barn and Yard, part of the historic farm complex at Pentlow Hall Farm, Pentlow, Essex. The historic barn, which burned to the ground in the 1990s, survived only as the partial remains of the brick plinths on which the timber-framed barn was raised up in the 16th/17th century. An evaluation trench excavated in advance of the construction of a new dwelling identified a foundation for a later cross-wall associated with the historic barn, as well as the surviving brick plinth of the medieval barn.
