The Tithe Barn

The Tithe Barn is thought to have been built in about 1480 by Prior Gondibour. It has had a complicated history since then, function as a barn until the Dissolution of the Monasteries by King Henry VIII, and then as a stable, dispensary, dwelling house, and joiner's shop. Semi derelict by 1970, it was purchased and restored by St Cuthbert's Church and has been used as our Church Hall since then.

It is a multi-purpose building, with uses as widely varied as parties and dances, political and church meetings, worship and concerts, examinations, receptions and rehearsals. Our users vary over all age groups - including the elderly and those with learning difficulties and other disabilities.
