Manor Farm Barn, Frindsbury, Kent

The great barn at Frindsbury was built in about 1403 and at 210 feet long was one of the longest in England. It had 13 full bays, but unfortunately 4 of these were destroyed in a great fire in 2005.

It was in the ownership of the Church Commissioners, but has now been bought by a consortium of local business men who plan to restore it and make it the centre of a community heritage area.

I have visited the barn a couple of times on Heritage Open Days. The restoration has of the missing bays has now been completed. I am looking forward to visiting the completed project.
