However, changing agricultural practices and economic pressures mean that many traditional farm buildings have lost their original purpose and become vulnerable to neglect and decay. Even those that remain in active agricultural use still need regular maintenance and periodic repairs to keep them in good order.
This guidance provides practical advice to farmers, land managers and others involved with the maintenance and repair of traditional farm buildings. It also explains how work of this kind can be considered in a wider context of sustainable management to ensure these buildings have an economic value and a future.
The guidance is primarily directed to buildings in active farming or related uses, but it is also relevant for those that have an uncertain future or need urgent works to prevent further deterioration of their structure and fabric.
