NCBPT achieves Grade II* designation for local barn of architectural significance

Thursday, 16 August 2018

The North Craven Building Preservation Trust has finally achieved the successful listing of Cappelside Barn in Rathmell. The barn, which lies on the Cappelside Estate and is also known as Brocklands Barn has been awarded Grade II* designation, which will serve to further protect this beautiful 18th century building.

The Historic England report states that "Cappleside Barn clearly meets the criteria for listing for multiple reasons including its relatively early date, the quality of its construction, the decorative detailing of its roof structure and the way that its design and evolution contributes to our understanding of farming in the area in the C18 and C19".
