Woodspring Priory Barn

“Woodspring Priory is a former Augustinian priory beside the Severn Estuary about 3 miles north-east of Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset. The priory was founded in the early thirteenth century, and dedicated to Thomas Becket.” - Wikipedia.

The priory is owned by the Landmark Trust which houses a small museum under the church tower.

The barn belongs to the neighbouring farm and is still in agricultural use. Built in the fifteenth century it has seven bays with a central midstrey and wagon porch. There are a number of additional doorways which are probably later insertions.
