These old barns are in the grounds of Dunham Massey... a National Trust property in Cheshire.
The Deer House c1740.
A two story block accommodating a hayloft on the upper floor.
The mangers still remain and were designed to be fed directly from the loft.
The lean to has 7 semi-elliptical headed arches to allow deer to enter.
This old barn/stable was build around c1700 and also has a hayloft.
I have added a few images of the mansion and gardens at Dunham Massey.
It stands in a magnificent 300 acre deer park.
These images were taken back in April... It's pouring with rain as I write this post.
Dunham Massey Hall initially built in 1616 but later remodelled between 1732-1740.
There are 45 listed buildings on the estate... including the barns.
The house has a beautiful interior...
...and a wonderful collection of Huguenot silver (this is only a part of it).
The estate is in the care of the National Trust of which I am a member.
This is my post to this weeks Barn Charm.
