Chazey Farm barn, The Warren, Reading - Reading (UA)

A very large seven bay red brick barn C17 or earlier. There is structural cracking and the gable currently has temporary shoring. The building forms part of a larger site proposal for a healthcare development. Ground works for the new development commenced in spring 2010. No repair works to the barn have been undertaken so far. Historic England and their structural engineering team have worked with the Local Planning Authority in reviewing the rate of deterioration. Discussions are ongoing.
