Free to visit. A very impressive barn! We parked at the woodlands at Coleshill and walked the footpath to the barn.

If you happen to be fascinate it is interesting to pop in and soak up the atmosphere and be amazed at how long this barn has survived. A short visit as there's not a great deal else to see.

The barn is fascinating, especially the structure and size. The locality and village are pretty. In addition, there are lovely walks in the vicinity.

An exquisite Cistercian barn with impressive timbers. Graffiti a point of interest. An architectural gem.
