Vale Barn at The Museum of Kent Life
Vale Barn at The Museum of Kent Life
The barn was relocated in 1989 from its original location at Calcott near Canterbury.

The 18th century barn once hosted a museum of farm related artefacts. Sadly it is a now children's 'play barn' and café, hiding the internal character of the building.
Museum of Kent Life
The Museum of Kent Life is an open air museum, based around an original farmstead, called Sandling Farm. One of the original buildings is an 19th century oast house, which is used to demonstrate hop drying during the September hop-picking season. There are also two farm houses and farmyard buildings.

A number of buildings have been saved from destruction and reconstructed at the site. These include hopper huts, thatched barn, granary, chapel, village hall, cottages, and another farmhouse.
