Townend Barn

  • Description

    "This is one of the finest examples of a bank barn in the Lake District. The oldest part (on the left) was built by George Browne in 1666 with the right hand side extension built in the eighteenth century. It is built on a bank so that cattle can access an area underneath to give them a place to shelter." Photo by Peter Holmes, 2012.
