Upminster Tithe Barn, London

Upminster Tithe Barn is located on Hall Lane in Upminster. It used to be in Essex but is now in Greater London. The hall in question used to be a hunting lodge for the abbots of Waltham Abbey and the barn was probably built about 1450.

It is a timber-framed, aisled barn but rather than being of the Essex type, Rigold suggests it is a Kentish style barn. It is 45 metres long and 12 metres wide with a central midstrey. It is now a Museum with  its collection of artefacts covering life and work in town and country.
