Barn at Knole House

The barn at Knole House in Kent stands next to the Brewhouse and Hayloft and backs on to a large courtyard. The roof of the barn was destroyed by a fire in 1887. The pitched roof was replaced by a flat roof and the tops of the walls crenellated.

Two new doorways were cut through on the courtyard side and it was used as a garage for most of the twentieth century.

Now the National Trust plans to restore the roof and convert the barn into a conservation studio where visitors will be able to watch the conservators at work.
