Swalcliffe Barn
Swalcliffe Barn
Constructed at the turn of the 15th century, Swalcliffe Barn is one of the finest tithe barns in England, with superb half-timber roof built in the half-cruck style. Original mason's marks can be seen on the stones inside the building.
The barn was begun in 1400 for New College, Oxford, and the founder of the college, Bishop William of Wykeham, gave the Swalcliffe estate and barn to his new foundation.  The barn is remarkably complete, with almost all of its original half-cruck roof still intact. For this reason it is considered among the best medieval barns in the country.

Within the barn is a local museum showcasing a collection of agricultural tools and vehicles, particularly Oxfordshire Wagons. The Swalcliffe Society also maintains an exhibit on local history of the area.
