|Abbey Barn, Yeovil|
|Location||Preston Plucknett, Yeovil, Somerset, England|
|Designated||19 March 1951|
The Abbey Barn in Preston Plucknett, Yeovil, Somerset, England was built around 1420 by John Stourton (died 1438), in conjunction with the Abbey Farm House. It has been designated as a Grade I listed building, and Scheduled Ancient Monument.
With an internal length of 31.4 metres (103 ft), it is the longest barn in Somerset.
It is now used as a building contractors showroom and store.
Until the late 1970s the building was an excellent example of a traditional thatched barn. Planning permission for redevelopment was refused several times by Yeovil Urban Council and its successor, South Somerset District Council. However, the thatch and supporting roof timbers were destroyed in the late 1970s by a major fire that was never satisfactorily explained. Following this, permission was given for the barn to be rebuilt into its current, stone-roofed form.
