Tithe Barn, Church Lane, Sydling St. Nicholas - West Dorset

Impressive C16 barn. It has an interesting constructional history and is part of an important complex of historic buildings. Its gradual deterioration has recently shown signs of accelerating with the loss of an area of roof covering. Progress on finding a suitable use has stalled and part of the protective roof covering has become dislodged.
