Barn at Planet Farm

Planet Farm consists of a cluster of farm buildings of which the seventeenth-century straw-thatched barn to the west is listed. This five-stead barn, approximately 22 x 5.5m, is aligned north-south and faces west. It is one of two buildings in Hethersett which remains thatched.

The first stead, faced in nineteenth-century brick, has bricks tumbled in at the left return. Two large doors front steads two and four and those to the right are clad in weatherboard. Although the right return is weatherboarded on a nineteenth-century timber frame, the corner posts with jowl tops are seventeenth century.

Inside, the three-tier roof has upward turned windbraces to the second tier and there are ties and collars. A number of internal walls and partitions are in English bond.
