The building is regarded as a fine example of an agricultural barn of Georgian period and it is of superior quality construction with walls of dressed stone laid to courses under a stone slate roof.

It enjoys a tranquil setting at the end of Fleet Street making up a small cluster of individual residences which are included within the boundaries of the Wallsuches Conservation Area and surrounded by open fields.

The elevated setting provides panoramic westerly views stretching across to the Welsh mountains and around to the Fylde coast and Lake District hills in the distance.


Proceeding out of Horwich town centre up Chorley Old Road and after approximately half a mile turn right into Fleet Street. Proceed up Fleet Street, pass the cottages which then becomes a single track and the barn is at the end of the lane.
