"Daywork Barn was the out-barn for Bridge House Farm. It was set in a bit of a croft of just over an acre. Apparently two of the Irish men who came over for hay-making each year got to arguing over how much a man could mow in a day with a scythe. One of them bet he could mow that croft in a day which he then did... and then dropped down dead from exhaustion that night. That's how the barn got it's name." (A. Walmsley)
