Hampshire lies between the uplands of the West Country and the Downs of the South-East so it is very varied in agriculture and building material.
The barns I have visited reflect this variety. The Great Barn at Beaulieu St. Leonards was a very high status building, constructed from imported limestone. Titchfield Abbey Barn started off as a timber-framed building, but was then cased in brick and flint taken from the demolished abbey. The Great Barn at Basing House was built from hand-made brick, a new high status material in the Tudor period. The barn at Rockbourne Manor is constructed from a variety of materials, repaired and added to over its history.
