Racing & River Boat Museum

The Racing & River Boat Museum at Beale Park opened in Spring 2013. The museum is dedicated to a collection of small historic boats.

The museum is housed in the old tithe barn at Church Farm in Lower Basildon. It is a large, timber-framed, aisled barn with a brick casing.

It is probably seventeenth century and has the arched or cranked under-principals supporting the purlins which is a feature of barns of this area and period.
