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. Inside 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. A mezzanine floor has been built at one end.

It has been restored and converted into the Headquarters & Visitor Centre for the Kent Wildlife Trust. It houses their office and shop and a wild life garden has been made behind the barn.
