Barns at Cosby

Cosby is one of the Leicestershire villages which retains its pre-enclosure layout with three barns still standing on the streets.

Cosby House barn has a date of 1766 in the gable. But the pitch of the roof has been altered and the timber frame is not complete, so this may be the date of the alterations. Coates barn, by the church has the appearance of an early tithe barn. It has been converted to offices.

Nook farm barn appears to be eighteenth century, but it may be on the  footprint of an earlier barn. It has doors in the upper walls for access to hay lofts and was probably mixed use.
