Priory Barn Wall Section

Priory Barn Wall Section in St Ives, Cambridgeshire

 

A description of Priory Barn Wall Section

One thing that is puzzling is the thickness of the wall. It is very thin for a structure that was 90 feet long and 35 feet wide. If one observes the image is actually vertical, as can be seen from the new apartments in the background, however the wall has a distinct inwards tilt (so does the gate!). It is possible that its demolition was due to the fact the barn was inherently weak and unstable in addition to any other reason.
