Risk Category 1
Conservation Area? No
This is a very large 17th century, 8 bay barn, with brick nogged timber framing on a stone plinth and partially stone slate, partially clay tile roof.
The condition of this barn is dangerous, significant roof failure and inf-ill fall-out causing stress on the structural timbers which have been weakened in turn by exposure to the elements.
Consent has just been given to an application for a very large extension to Dymock Grange itself as well as the creation of leisure facilities in and attached to the barn. The applicants intended to safeguard the barn initially once consent had been obtained for the whole application, however this is yet to happen.
The Local Authority commissioned a condition survey and immediate repairs schedule prior to granting consent in order to establish the barn's ability to take the proposed alterations. Provided that suitably experienced specialists in the field of timber frame repair work are employed, the barn will be able to be repaired and converted.
