Nailsea Tithe Barn, Somerset

Nailsea Tithe Barn was built in 1470, next to Holy Trinity Church in the historic centre of Nailsea in Somerset. This makes it a true tithe barn with tithes paid to the Rector of the parish for his salary and the upkeep of the church. After its life as a barn it was a school for 200 years and has been renovated and converted to a village hall. It is run by a trust as a community hall and wedding venue.

The barn is seven bays long, with a clay, pantile roof supported by six raised-cruck trusses. On the inside, the latest conversion allows you to see most of the barn interior, although the chimney piece from its days as a school obstructs the view of one end
