The Village, Church Farm

The Village at Church Farm in Skegness, Lincolnshire is a small open air, farming museum run entirely by volunteers. It has a number of interesting buildings including a Lincolnshire mud & stud cottage and an eighteenth century post & truss barn.

Boothby barn was dismantled and moved from its previous site at nearby Welton le Marsh and re-erected in the museum in 1998. It now houses a Hornsby Traction Engine and Threshing Drum. It is a three bay, gabled barn with a tiled roof and clapboard cladding. Inside it has sawn, jowled wall-posts with straight braces to the tie-beams and collar-beams to the principal rafters.
