Pilton Tithe Barn

Pilton Tithe Barn is one of four surviving barns belonging to Glastonbury Abbey. On 23 June 1963 lightning set fire to the thatched roof and it remained a wreck until Michael Eavis, organiser of the Glastonbury Festival, bought it in 1995, and presented the barn to the Pilton Barn Trust.

It was eventually restored with a grant from English Heritage and a donation from the Glastonbury Festival. The work was carried out by McCurdy and Co who reproduced the original roof as faithfully as possible. It is now administered by a trust and used as a community venue. It may be open during Heritage Open Days.
