Event-at-Tithe-Barn--Landbeach

A local charity aiming to save a Grade II listed barn in Landbeach has been given a big boost by the Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF).

The Tithe Barn Trust was created by concerned residents who wish to restore the 16th century barn for community use, and it is now one step closer to its goal thanks to a grant from the AHF.

The AHF is a charity working to promote the conservation and sustainable re-used or historic buildings in the UK.

Christine Taylor, trustee and treasurer at Tithe Barn Trust, said: “This is fantastic news as this grant will allow us to progress the Tithe Barn project to the next step.

“There is still a lot of work to be done, as although we have raised over £65,000, our major fundraising quest continues.
