The farm's 17th century Tithe Barn reduced to less than half the volume
during the 1987 Hurricane!
A tithe barn was used in the Middle Ages for storing of tithes - a
tenth of the farm's produce which had to be given to the church. A tithe
barn would usually be associated with the village church or rectory,
to which independent farmers took their tithes. Church Farm, where this
barn is located, is adjacent to St Mary's Church. An underground
'priest-hole' tunnel is said to run between the farmhouse and the
church, but appears to have been filled-in at the turn of 1900s.
