Plans to transform a barn which dates back to the 17th century into a new five bedroomed home have been submitted by developers.
Appllicant Karl Shaw, of Morley, says the Grade II Listed Clock Barn, on the Farnley Hall Estate off Hall Lane, is in a ‘severely dilapidated state’, has been left to decay for 40 years. It is listed on the council’s heritage at risk register.
A heritage statement submitted with the application said the plans would preserve the future use of the bulking and maintain its existing features.
“Overall, the Clock Barn is perilously close to complete collapse, which the current owner is determined to prevent,” the statement adds.
The Clock Barn is situated within the curtilage of Farnley Hall, the Potting Sheds and the stables north of Farnley Hall.
