Red Barns House and Red Barns Hotel, Kirkleatham Street - Redcar and Cleveland (UA)

Red Barns was commissioned and built in the mid nineteenth century as the family home of the Bell's (Sir Hugh Bell). It was designed by Philip Webb a member of William Morris and Partners. A blue plaque on the wall of Red Barns honours Gertrude Bell (daughter of Sir Hugh) the archaeologist, writer and traveller. The building is vacant and deteriorating due to a lack of regular maintenance. Planning permission has been granted for the conversion and reuse of part of the building.
