In 1959, WR Jr. gave the Bradenstoke Tithe Barn to my father, Alex Madonna.

This building has been in storage for over 80-years in California. It was built by the Augustinian Monks in Wiltshire, England in 1372.

In the 1920's, William Randolph Hearst bought, disassembled and shipped her to America to become a component of his fancy castle in San Simeon.

Today the future of this building hangs by a string.

Why not just give it back to Bradenstoke?
