West Pennard Court Barn

West Pennard Court was a grange of Glastonbury Abbey. The barn is one of four surviving barns which belonged to the abbey.

It is smaller than the other three with only five bays. It is not such a high status building, although it did have a dovecote on one end. The keeping of doves was a prerogative of the lord of the manor.

The barn fell into dereliction and was bought and repaired by a local business man who then passed it on to The National Trust.
