The story behind the troubled barn is simple, Leeds City Council intend to sell this historic barn to local developers instead of keeping it as a historic landmark.
We intend to save this barn from the fate of developers, the local area around this barn has been bleated by developers during the previous years who in turn have destroyed the local heritage of this once well known coal mining and mill town, 75% of the local mills have either been converted to flats or demolished to make way for un-needed local housing, Many of these new developments still stand empty, Don't let stank Hall Barn Suffer the same fate, Help us make a difference, please sign this petition to show that you do not want Stank Hall Barn to be sold to Developers, instead sold to a private invester who will keep it as it should be and available to the public.

    Save it!

    Leeds City Council, and especially our local councillors need to save heritage sites such as this in South Leeds. Once gone they are gone forever. Pressure should be brought to save this important building. Where’s our MP? Can’t he help? A museum in the area sounds to be a fantastic idea.

  4. Tracy Marshall UNITED KINGDOM

    It should be saved for public use.

    This really does need sorting!

  6. Michelle Hawkesworth

    This is a crying shame that this building is left to rack and ruin, it needs protecting against the elements

  7. Sally Cieslik UNITED KINGDOM

    We need to save our heritage sites and this is one with a long history worth saving.

    There must be plenty of potential benefit in saving this site,firtsly in the short term as the longer it is left the more it will cost to repair.
    Secondly,sensitive restoration of the buildings could lead the council to open the farm as a museum,for which entrance can be charged and also provide a focal point and source of pride for the community,stimulating interest in local history.

  12. Des Thomas UNITED KINGDOM

    Historical buidings are all too quickly dissapearing or converted into other non-historical uses. I would like to see this building saved and brought to the publics attention.

  13. Hannah UNITED KINGDOM

    This Building has an importance to its local heritage and therefore should be preserved, it would be great to make into a local attraction to visit and find out more about local stories and history, and the wood is said to have come from columbus’ ships! even more amazing!!!! KEEP THIS BEAUTY

  14. Jean Hudson UNITED KINGDOM

    The whole site needs sympathetic restoration. It’s such a very important part of our local history and just cannot be allowed to fall into the hand of property developers.
