A Nissen hut with permission to be converted into a one-bedroom home will go up for sale next month.

The barns at Barrowfield Farm, Isleham Road, Fordham form a small farmyard extending to 0.34 acres.

They comprise a detached Nissen hut -  a prefabricated steel structure for military use - and an open-fronted timber pole barn with lean-to.

Also included within the sale - which has a guide price of £140,000 - is a 30-foot shipping container.

Prior approval for change of use to residential was granted by  East Cambridgeshire District Council in November 2020.
