Former monastic barn was a favourite of artist William Morris, who would regularly bring his guests to wonder at the structure.

The barn, built in the first decade of the 14th century, is constructed of Cotswold stone and the roof is constructed of Stonesfield slate. The barn is aisled, to support the massive roof. There is a dovecote over the door of the east porch. The floor area is 5,502 sq. ft. ( 511 sq. metres).

Although the barn may well have been used as a tithe barn sometime in its history (a type of barn used in much of northern Europe in the Middle Ages for storing the tithes – a tenth of the farm’s produce which had to be given to the church) , when it was built, it was as part of a monastic grange under the control of Beaulieu Abbey, in Hampshire and would have been used to store of the crop of the grange.
