A description of Priory Barn ventilation slit (Inside)
A number of the ventilation slits that allowed air to flow through the old barn are still clearly visible. This photograph was taken from what was once the inside of the barn where the now bricked-up opening was about 15 inches wide. It would appear that the openings were closed off in two stages. This is consistent with the records that indicate that towards the end of its life the barn was used as a public hall and a theatre.
