What's happening at the Tithe Barn?


There are plenty of reasons to visit the Tithe Barn this autumn. On Sunday 9th September, from 1-5pm, the unique timber frame Tithe Barn will be opening its doors as part of Heritage Open Days.

 

You’ll be able to have a go at threshing wheat on the historic brick threshing floor, grind the grain to flour on a quern stone and even make your own Corn Dolly. Corn dollies, an ancient tradition, were made at Harvest time from the last sheaf of corn cut. The Corn Spirit was believed to live in the corn doll and was kept until the following spring and then ploughed into the first furrow to ensure a good harvest.

 

The Tithe Barn Trust, a small charity and not-for profit volunteer group, is proud to participate in Heritage Open Days. Heritage Open Days is the largest heritage festival in the country; in 2016, over 5,000 events welcomed around three million visitors across England. Every single Heritage Open Days event is free.

Start your own tradition


Begin your own apple gifting tradition at the Tithe Barn on Sunday 21st October from 11am till 3pm. Get hands-on and decorate an apple with twigs, rosehips and candied fruit. In the past these were offered around the community as a sign of friendship, good health and good luck. Who will you give yours to?
