This was all converted into houses in the 70s.

My understanding is that this was the longest tithe barn in Sussex.

Are you sure the conversions were not in the 80s at least?
By Stuart Knight (16/12/2004)
Nope, Stuart; it was a surprise to me when revisiting Patcham in early 1974, to see the conversions.

Fortunately it was a tasteful conversion and the barn remained intact. Shame they want to build a Park and Ride car park directly opposite.

It looks to be a really beautiful barn. I am going to try and see it.

Actually, the conversion of the barn section of the development was 1986; converted into seven houses with Church Hall at one end, enabling development built opposite but unlikely to have been in 70s. Sorry Les, but I live in 'a bit of the barn'! P.S. for Gillian - Park and Ride was turned down, here's hoping it stays that way.
