There has, unfortunately, been some severe vandalism at Plant Farm recently, including a significant fire last weekend. WCC Historic Environment officer visted the site yesterday and English Heritage have been notified as the farm building is listed. What happens next will be guided by their recommendations. The perpetrators are probably local, any information should be given to the local police.
This is heartbreaking for Grainger who have spend many hundreds of thousand of pounds protecting the buildings and had plans to include them in the built out development.
