Old Tithe Barn, Waddon, 520, Purley Way - Croydon

C18 former barn, now in use as a place of worship. The barn is an unusual structure of two parallel ranges with an M-shaped roof. The timber frame is clad in light brickwork with a steeply pitched tiled roof and wooden louvres at the end of each range. Some repairs have been undertaken to make the building watertight, however further work is required to the roof and to clear the rainwater goods.
