Falmer Long Barn

The barn today


Restoration c.1948


Falmer Court Farm long barn is probably C16 in date and is listed grade II*. It is faced with flints with a half-hipped thatched roof and has two waggon entrances and 2 lunette windows on each side. Inside, the barn has tie-beams, crown-posts with braces and some queen posts.

It was re-thatched 70 years ago just after WW2. It seems probable that it is still the same thatch.
