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 school house 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. Subject to confirmation of ownership by the Charities Commission, the building will be sold on the open market. Internal flooding has made the building uninhabitable. Renewed rainwater goods and assorted high level fabric repairs are also required to ensure that the building remains weatherproof. Crown reduction to a large tree close to the school has been recently undertaken.
