4/148 Tithe Barn, 8 metres West of The



Tithe barn. Probably of C15. Local stone, mostly random coursed; double
Roman clay tiles between coped gables with eroded finials. Of 6-bays
with projecting East porch to bay-4; raised cruck trusses with double
collars and pairs of, renewed, purlins to each slope, formerly
windbraced. Angled offset buttresses to corners of main building, and
low offset buttresses to each bay, with cruciform slit windows between;
large doorway in East porch matched by doorway in opposite wall; gables
have offset to wall at eaves level, and central offset buttresses, with
high slits and putlog holes in gables. Northern 2 bays now adapted into
stable with loft over. Blocked slightly ogee arch in South wall of
porch. Probably belonging to the Grange associated with Muchelney Abbey,
this forms an impressive grouping with the Rectory (qv) and Dovecote
