Fancy seeing inside a medieval barn in South Leeds and learn a little about its history and the work to preserve it? Just a reminder that the Friends of Stank Hall Barn’s July event is less than a couple of weeks away.
The Stank Hall Barn Revealed event is on Sunday 14th July, 11am – 2pm. There will be three guided tours of the historic site at 11am, 12pm and 1pm. This includes the opportunity to see inside the barn. It is also a great opportunity to share views on the future use of the site, which has fallen into neglect, and meet other members of the group.
Members of the city council’s Joint Plans Panel were recently asked to note the work being done to reduce the number of buildings at risk. Securing the future of Stank Hall Barn is one of the council’s top priorities over the coming year. Temple Mill in Holbeck are also on the ‘buidings at risk’ list.
A ‘building at risk’ is a listed building at risk from neglect and decay rather than alteration.
