History of The Barn

Within the estate, visitors can find the huge Grade I listed Barley Barn, built by the Knights Templar in circa 1206AD.

It is said to be the oldest recorded timber-framed barn in the world and next door stands the equally impressive Wheat Barn, built in around 1280AD.

Visitors can find one of the best examples of how a Tudor garden would have looked.
