Lains Barn, Wantage, Oxfordshire

Lains Barn is a timber-framed, aisled barn located just outside Wantage in Oxfordshire. It was built in 1750. It is a 6 bay, aisled barn with a clay tile roof supported by queen post trusses. It is clapboard clad on a brick plinth. During the Victorian period an L-shaped cow byre was added to create a fold-yard. Next to it is a granary supported on staddle stones which is probably contemporary with the barn.

By 1970 the barn had become redundant and fell into disrepair. It was rescued by the Vale and Downland Museum Trust in Wantage. It was restored and converted into a community venue. It is now run privately as a wedding venue.
