Barn north east of Bentley Hall, Bentley Hall Road, Bentley - Babergh

Barn built C15, timber-framed and brick nogging. It is redundant and is only suitable for a very low-key use. It is structurally unstable and water is penetrating the walls in places, accelerating decay of its structure. Historic England and the Local Authority are involved in ongoing discussions with the owner to secure the conservation of the barn. Urgent Works Notice served and some repairs implemented. Fully detailed and costed schedule of repairs prepared in anticipation of service of Repairs Notice. Discussions underway with Local Authority and Building Preservation Trust.
