HER Number:MDV108723
Name:Thatched barn on Back Lane, Stickpath

Summary

The best remaining unconverted agricultural building in Sticklepath - it epitomises the historic vernacular character of the village. Constructed of rendered cob on an unrendered stone plinth, it is the last outbuilding here to retain its thatch. All the more important for its location in the ancient heart of the settlement.
