Notes NOTES: This barn, the sole surviving building of a 13th century grange, was built of Cotswold rubble-stone walling, with a Cotswold slate roof. Forming part of the Coleshill Estate, it was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1956 by Ernest Cook, the grandson and joint heir to the fortune of Thomas Cook, the famous travel agent, and founder of the Ernest Cook Trust, which is dedicated to the preservation of English country houses and their estates.
