Dunsford's 1790 account refers to a barn on the north side of the yard next to the castle. Stone built. 'large enough to contain great part of the annual produce of the Barton, having curious and strong roof that will probably endure for ages'. He also mentions that the barn had been frequently used as a temporary theatre.
