Other Re-purposed Barns

As they became redundant for agricultural use many hundreds of barns have been allowed to decay and collapse or have been deliberately demolished. Fortunately some of the larger and better preserved have been given a new lease of life by being re-purposed. Many of these have been converted to wedding venues but others have been given a new life as museums, shops, restaurants, hotels or inns. Most of these are open to the public.
