Ken’s Great Barns - Places to Visit

Bede’s World

The Visitor Centre at Bede’s World explains the life and work of an Anglo-Saxon Monastery and the amazing influence that the Venerable Bede had on the culture of the Anglo-Saxon World. He spent his life in this tiny enclave but became renowned throughout the Christian world for his learning and scholarship.

You can also visit a reconstruction of the sort of farm which the monastery relied on to feed and clothe itself and the ruins of the abbey. The image on the left links to the website.
