Showing typical oak pegged roof tiles and peg jointed internal structural timbers.
The present Great Barn dates largely from 1388 and was used for
storing and processing crops (threshing and winnowing).
Having been built for the Cistercian Abbey, the barn was not a tithe
barn as it would have stored the entire manor crop.
The barn is made from massive oak timbers and is an aisled barn with
large doors on either long side to permit entry by carts.
It was extended in 1705. The dates have been obtained using dendrochronology techniques.
