The Tithe Barn with church and medieval domestic buildings (private)

Ashleworth Tithe Barn is a former Augustinian, monastic, grange barn, built in the fifteenth century (circa 1496). It has limestone walls and gables with a queen post truss roof supporting a huge, limestone tile roof. It is 125 ft long and 25 ft wide, having ten bays with two wagon porches.

You approach the barn down a narrow lane from Ashleworth village to the River Severn. It has the church and some medieval domestic buildings next to it. It now belongs to the National Trust and is open all year round from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm. or dusk in the Winter. This was the first great barn that I visited and it is still one of my favourites.
