Calton Hall Barn, Calton MYD36615 (c) YDNPA, 2023
This building is not included in this gazetteer because it is an outstanding example of traditional building: it is here because pieces of timber from a building long since demolished were used in its construction. This demonstrates that cruck buildings were once found in the Yorkshire Dales although now less than a handful survive.
Neither is the building unique: many traditional farm buildings, and even houses, contain similar re-used timbers. So why include this building in preference to the others? Simply because here, the re-used crucks are on the outside and may be seen by anyone passing by.
