The majority of old farmland in the UK consisted of many different types of buildings and in most cases, one of these would be a good sturdy barn. Back in those days, the barns were built to last and this is the reason so many of them exist today. It must be remembered that these farms to exist had to depend on much of their livestock for doing so. Horses played an important role in fulfilling many of the tasks required to work the land, as well as for transportation. This created a need for housing the horses which were one of the main purposes of the barn.
