Spaxton, Ebsley Farm Barn

Restoration of the C18 cob threshing barn and timber framed linhay barn which had originally been thatched.

After considerable debate corrugated iron sheet was chosen for the new roof covering as this material had replaced the thatch more than 100 years before.

Traditional lime plasters and cob were used to restore the damage done by time and the tunnelling of rats, which had all but brought the walls to a state of near collapse (pictured before repair).
