Your chance to see £1.2m restoration of medieval Somerset tithe barn

A medieval barn in Nailsea which was restored at a cost of £1.2 million is throwing open its doors to allow people to take a peek behind the scenes of the historic building.

A series of tours of the Grade II listed Tithe Barn, which opened in June following a year-long refurbishment, are being held over the coming months.

Tours will be held every third Monday of the month from 10am to 11am on January 16, February 20 and March 19. The barn, which is one of Nailsea’s oldest buildings dating back to 1480, has been a centre of schooling since Hannah More founded Nailsea Great School in 1789.
