Secular college at Parsonage Farm, Stoke Sub Hamdon - South Somerset

Attached to this chantry college is a group of medieval and C16 farm buildings, some of which are in poor condition and unroofed. However others, such as the threshing barn, are capable of beneficial use. Owned by the National Trust, Historic England has had a number of meetings on site and in 2015 and 2016 funded an options appraisal to consider ways of bringing the buildings back into use. Discussions are continuing and the National Trust is considering ways to improve the use of the site and safeguard the roofless buildings.
