The Wheldon School Michael Hutchinson Residential Centre (former Church of St Agnes), Hollinsclough, Staffordshire Moorlands - Staffordshire Moorlands

This C18 barn, converted to a combined church, school and schoolhouse in C19, was closed circa 1960 and made into a residential field study centre in 1974 for which it continued to be used until relatively recently. Internal flooding in 2018 has made the building uninhabitable. Crown reduction to a large tree close to the school was undertaken in 2019 and assorted works to ensure that the building remains weatherproof and structurally stable were carried out in spring 2021. Subject to confirmation of ownership by the Charities Commission, the building will be sold on the open market
