A fantastic afternoon at New Hall Barn, near Barnsley, despite the rain

PLACE had a fascinating afternoon on April 14th, looking at a medieval cruck barn at New Hall Farm, near Barnsley.  The cruck timbers have been dated as 16th century and the barn has been lovingly restored by its owners, Helen and David Rhodes, with financial assistance from Natural England.  Helen gave us an informative slide show, followed by a chance to look around the barn itself and a briefer-than-planned look at the farm because of the weather.  Below are one or two photos of the afternoon:
