Clipbush Barn

About page

This page has details of a barn conversion in Norfolk, England. In 2005 I visited Abergavenny Farm where my grandfather had been born. The old barn has since been converted to a modern residence.

Clipbush Barn, Abergavenny Farm, Clipbush Lane, Scoulton, Norwich is a 5 bedroom barn conversion on Abergavenny Farm. The following details came from a real estate page for the property. The property was first listed on 2 November 2009 and again on 4 July 2012. Details of property and photographs from Cheffins, Meldreth House Wellington Street, Newmarket, CB8 0HT, UK.
