A tithe barn was a type of barn used in much of northern Europe in the middle ages for storing rents and tithes, one tenth of a farm’s produce which was given to the Church. Tithe barns were usually associated with the village church or rectory and independent farmers took their tithes there.
Two apple presses, complete with their milling equipment exist today in Middle Littleton, although they are no longer in use. One of these is part of the outbuildings of the Tithe Barn while the other is attached to a house in West Side. Local brewing of beer, as well as cider making, was important to a small village community.
