Wymondley Priory Barn

Wymondley Priory is a moated site in Hertfordshire founded by the Knights Templar in the early thirteenth century. The great barn is a rectorial tithe barn built for the Priory in the fifteenth century.

It is a timber-framed, aisled barn with nine bays. It has a hipped, clay-tiled roof with a central midstrey and gabled porch. It measures 102 ft x 39 ft externally. Inside it has arched braces from the aisle posts to the tie beams and arcade plate and arched windbraces to the roof purlins.

It is  sited near to the moat which used to surround the priory, a beautiful setting for its present use as a wedding venue.
