Late medieval threshing barn, Mersham Manor, Church Road, Mersham - Ashford

A fine late medieval barn that has for some time been suffering from water ingress and structural movement. All its roof tiles have been removed without Listed Building Consent and replaced with protective sheeting. Historic England is working with the Local Planning Authority and owners to secure the barn's long-term future.
