Frindsbury Barn is one of the few surviving great medieval barns of England. Dating from 1403, the barn is an exquisite example of early medieval carpentry and craftsmanship. Sadly the barn was partially damaged by fire in 2003 and an exciting project is now in progress to reconstruct the damaged north end and to sympathetically repair the surviving fabric. Every effort is being made to use traditional skills and authentic methods wherever possible. A Heritage Skills Weekend was recently held to demonstrate how this will be achieved and some photographs of this activity can be seen below.
