10th&11th: Heritage Open Days
Winterbourne Medieval Barn
Sat and Sun 10/11th September, 11am - 4pm
Heritage Open Days celebrate England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering FREE access to properties across the country that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. This year's theme is Astounding Inventions.
Winterbourne Medieval Barn, built in 1342, is a unique surviving example of a great medieval Barn built by a gentry family. It was built using green-timber construction methods which were the cutting-edge technology of that period. It is a fine example of a raised-cruck construction and one of the largest and earliest raised-cruck barns.
Why not combine your visit with a trip to St Michael’s Church next door? Check their listing for times. We’re also located next to Monks Pool Nature Reserve which makes the Barn an ideal starting point for exploring the local landscape.
Look out for the A Board and bunting on the lane to direct you to the entrance of the Barn. Limited car parking is available onsite. We have plenty of cycle parking for those travelling by bike. The Barn is a pleasant ten minute walk from Winterbourne High Street.
Assistance and well-behaved dogs on a lead are welcome. Dogs remain the responsibility of the owner within the grounds of the Barn.
