Great Coxwell Tithe Barn, National Trust, Faringdon, Oxfordshire. Open every day - dawn til dusk. Free entry.


Accessibility:

Parking is available in a lengthy tarmacked lay-by alongside the grounds of the barn. The site is level, although it is largely laid to compacted gravel and earth. The entrance to the barn itself has a few slightly raised cobbles to negotiate.

There are no toilet facilities on the site. The nearest public toilets with disability facilities are in Farringdon (SU288954) - around 2 miles to the east. Dogs are welcome but should be kept on leads.

Brief Description:

Once part of a large 13th century grange, Great Barn in Great Coxwell is all that survives of the site that provided funds to Beaulieu Abbey in Hampshire. The original grange would have included a windmill, pig farm and dairy herd.
