Middle Littleton Tithe Barn

Middle Littleton Tithe Barn was built in the thirteenth or fourteenth century for the monks of Evesham Abbey.  It is 130 feet long and 42 feet wide. It originally had two gabled wagon porches on the long sides, but two of these were demolished in the Victorian period. It is built of Cotswold stone with a stone-tile roof.

Inside it has a complex raised-cruck roof with the purlins clasped between two tie-beams. At each end are a pair of aisle posts reinforcing the gables. It is owned by the National Trust and open most days.
