Durham Prison Officers' Club, ('The Tithe Barn'), Hallgarth Street, Durham - County Durham (UA)

C15 granary building, erroneously known as 'The Tithe Barn', forming part of an important group of medieval farm buildings. The building lies outside the secure perimeter of the adjoining prison and is used as part of the Prison Officers' Club. The roof, stonework and close-studded upper floor require attention. Repointing of the barn has been completed but further works are required, particularly to the granary.
