Tyland Barn,
Maidstone, Kent

Tyland Barn near Maidstone in Kent is a restored seventeenth century, timber-framed, Kentish aisled barn with a half-hipped roof. It has two gabled wagon-porches on the front with lower exit doors opposite. Internally it has queen post roof trusses with very tall queen posts to a single pair of purlins. There are arched braces to the tie beams and arcade plates.

It has been restored and converted into the Headquarters & Visitor Centre for the Kent Wildlife Trust with an upper floor inserted at one end. A wild life garden has been mjade at the rear of the barn.
