All new presentation for 2024!

Who was Thomas De Bradeston and why did he build Winterbourne Medieval Barn?
How was it built? Why was it so important then and now?
What are the links between The Barn and St. Michael’s Church?
Find out about the turbulent 1400s and what was happening in England as the barn was being built.
Hear the fascinating story of how this historic site was almost lost, how and why it was saved, and how it is used today.

Come and find out the answers to these questions and more at our monthly Tea & Tour!
Includes a talk on the history of The Barn (past & present), interesting features pointed out and discussed plus plenty of time for questions with one of our tour guides over a cuppa.

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

Please note parking for this event will be on site at the Barn, BS36 1SE. The car park will be locked once the event has finished so please ensure your car is moved if you will be exploring the local area after your visit to The Barn.

The primary purpose of this event is to raise money for WMBT and to support conservation, management, maintenance and improvement of the WMBT site.
