Description

The monument consists of an 18th- or early 19th-century barn and its court yard adjacent to the church whose teinds or tithes were stored in it.

The barn is an attractive two-storey stone building with crowstepped gables, approached by an outside stair. On the N side, beside the road the joists of the main floor reach through to the outside of the wall; below is a basement level approached directly by doors in the S wall. Above these is a timber loft. The building was altered in the

19th century, with the addition of an elegant chimney, a

rearrangement of the interior and an extra door.

The area to be scheduled includes the barn and the courtyard to the E of it, is irregular on plan and measures a maximum of 26m E-W by 17m N-S, as marked in red on the accompanying plan.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because it is a rare survival of a tithe barn still associated with its church. It provides evidence of the architecture of this form of building and physical evidence for a now-vanished form of taxation.
