Medieval barn to open at Lloyd's Great Dixter home

A 500-year-old medieval barn and three 19th Century oast houses are opening to the public for the first time at a well-known house in East Sussex.

The Grade II* listed great barn will open on Tuesday at Great Dixter in Northiam, near Rye, the former home of horticulturist Christopher Lloyd.

His head gardener Fergus Garrett said the buildings had an atmosphere of stepping back in time.
