Work is underway to redevelop a 14th-century manor by restoring the land's medieval tithe barn wall which a former owner had built houses into.
The Court de Wyck estate, in Claverham, has a rich history, originally being used as a family estate before being converted into a tannery, tobacco factory and most recently as offices.
Housing developer, Newland Homes is also tasked with bringing its grade-II listed chapel back into residential use.
Project manager, Craig Cobham said: "We believe that every building has a story to tell, and although it is not listed, the historic tithe barn wall is a distinct structure which helps us understand how this site has evolved over the years.
"We felt its retention was integral to the setting of the new homes and helped root the development at Claverham to its historic past."
Seventy-five homes will be built on the site, with some available for purchase now.
