The Wheldon School Michael Hutchinson Residential Centre, Hollinsclough, Staffordshire Moorlands - Staffordshire Moorlands

This C18 barn, converted to a combined church, school and school house in C19 was closed c1960 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. Flooding due to a burst water pipe has made the building uninhabitable. Renewed rainwater goods and assorted high level fabric repairs are also required to ensure that the building remains weatherproof. The effect of a large tree close to the building needs to be assessed.
