Bailey Hall Barn, Lancashire
For Private Client
The barn is a cruck framed structure and is listed Grade II. An appraisal of the building identified five major phases of development, with the earliest fabric of sixteenth century date, relating to the remains of a five-bay timber framed barn. The present masonry walls date from the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Woodhall was appointed as the Conservation Architect to design a scheme for residential conversion of the barn and its ancillary structures. Planning permission and listed building consent were granted for the conversion of the cruck barn to a single dwelling. In order to retain views of the cruck frame structure, the bedrooms will be at ground floor level, with open plan living areas on an inserted mezzanine floor and a full height entrance hall. The northern end of the barn and the later extension to the west will be converted to a second dwelling, with ancillary accommodation provided in the outbuildings.
