The Great Barn, Harmondsworth

The great barn at Harmondsworth is a medieval barn on the former Manor Farm in the village of Harmondsworth, in the London Borough of Hillingdon. It was described by the English poet John Betjeman as the “Cathedral of Middlesex”.

The barn was briefly in royal ownership but passed into private hands until the 1970s when it was transferred to a property development company which redeveloped the farm complex.

The barn then fell into disrepair until it was rescued by English Heritage who eventually purchased the barn in 2012.
