Middle Littleton Tithe Barn

Middle Littleton Tithe Barn is a 13th-century tithe barn, one of the largest and finest in the country.

One of the largest and finest 13th-century tithe barns in the country, lying in the Worcestershire countryside.

If you’re visiting Middle Littleton tithe barn make the most of your day by visiting nearby Croome Park, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s first complete landscape garden or Hidcote Manor Garden, a celebrated 20th-century garden in the north Cotswolds.

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.
