Manor Farm barn, Winterborne Clenston - Dorset (UA)

Huge late C16 tithe barn part used for storage. The hammerbeam roof may have been reused from a monastic building at Milton Abbey. Partial roof collapse resulted in Historic England funding the erection of scaffolding as a temporary roof support. These repair works were completed in 2008, but there has been no further progress and the building is slowly deteriorating.
