Barns & Beasts at Bede’s World

If you are ever in Tyne & Wear, do go to Bede’s World. It is some time since our visit and it is now called Jarrow Hall. The museum displays a very clear and thorough explanation of the role of the Venerable Bede and the Anglo-Saxon monasteries of the North in the development of England.  Visit the website for more information and opening hours.

I have included it here because there is an interesting collection of reconstructed buildings and rare breeds from the Anglo-Saxon period. Along with the reconstruction at West Stow it helps to give us some idea of one of the starting points for the development of the English barn.
