Dating back to the late C16 this Grade II* listed building, once part of the former Gilbertine Priory, is in desperate need of consolidation and repair. Set in the heart of the East Riding of Yorkshire the building was last used as a dwelling before falling into ruin and has remained to this day.
Ferrey and Mennim Ltd were consulted to propose restorative works to the fabric of the medieval barn, whilst providing a feasibility study into adapting the ruin into residential units.
The proposals involved carefully constructing a building within a building, by renewing the sub structure to support the new walls which supported the new roof structure, thus having minimal impact on the historical nature of the fabric.
