Heritage Open Days 2020

Start date: 12th September 2020

End date: 16th September 2020

Time: 2pm - 5pm

Location: Winterbourne Medieval Barn Site

Winterbourne Medieval Barn, built in 1342, is a unique surviving example of a great medieval Barn built by a gentry family. Constructed using green timber methods, cutting edge technology for the time, it has been described as a magnificent example of the builders craft.

The Barn has undergone a year of transformation during which time it was closed to the public. Be one of the first to tour around the recently completed building and renovation works and see the splendour of the Barn for yourself.

To make these tours safe, we will be limiting numbers so please book a place in advance. Click ‘Book a Place’ choose your preferred date, and then select your tour time.  Please book one ticket per household group and let us know how many of you there will be attending in the questions section of the booking process. There are 2 slots currently available with more to be released soon!

If you can’t make it to the Barn in person, keep an eye on our social media pages and the website as we’ll be posting lots of activities online over the weekend for you to enjoy from the comfort of your lounge!

We’re also sited next to Monks Pool Nature Reserve which makes the Barn an ideal starting point for exploring the local landscape.

Why not combine your visit with a trip to St Michael’s Church next door. They’ll be open 2 – 5pm on Saturday 12th September.
