Richards, A. F., 2013, Little Palston barn, South Brent (Personal Comment). SDV351438.

Rosmary Robinson's comment for the checklist entry (which was undated) suggests the remains of the barn have been removed. However, the historic maps and the aerial photographs appear to contradict this, showing a barn at the site throughout history. Possibly, this barn may be a replacement on the same footprint of the original.
