West Pennard Court Barn
West Pennard Court Barn
A 15th century barn of 5 bays, with an unusual roof made of compacted earth. West Pennard barn stands in a lovely rural setting. Though of interest as an excellent example of a medieval farm building, the barn is most interesting for its unusual construction; the upper floor is built of compacted earth.
The barn was restored by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1938 and then granted to the National Trust.

Note: Admission by arrangement only. Keyholder is nearby. Also note that the barn is located in a farm field which may be damp in wet weather, so good footwear is advisable.

After many years being looked after by the National Trust, the barn no longer appears to be on the Trust website and there are no details of current opening availability. We'll try to find out more and post an update on this page.
