Faversham Abbey - Major Barn

The two barns are the only surviving buildings from Faversham Abbey.

The Major Barn is the newer one and dates from 1476. It is a timber-framed, aisled barn with a hipped, clay tile roof.  A large granary has been inserted at the north end. It has two midstreys, one with a wagon porch.

The barns are now used as joinery workshops and the granary is used as offices. Apart from some steel bracing, the barn is little altered. The machinery and wiring are independent of the structure.
