St. Barnabas Centre,
Thorley, Hertfordshire

The St Barnabas barn is one of several barns in a settlement centred on the manor of Thorley Hall. The original settlement consisted of the manor house, with its outbuildings, which comprised barns, granary, stables and a dovecote, the church of St, James the Great and several cottages.

The barn is a sixteenth century, timber-framed, aisled barn. It has nine bays with arched braces to the tie beams and arcade plate.  The barn was donated to the church by a parishioner who sold some land to pay for it refurbishment and conversion into a church to house the congregation which had outgrown the  the Medieval church.
