Leigh Court Barn is an outstanding example of English medieval carpentry, and the largest cruck framed structure in Britain. Built for Pershore Abbey in about 1325, it is over 42 metres long with 18 cruck blades - each made from a single oak tree.
Opening Times: the barn is open daily, 10am-6pm from April to October, and 10am-4pm from November to March.
Parking: There is very limited parking available on the roadside.
How to Find it: The barn can be reached on foot via the left hand pedestrian gate adjacent to the driveway of Leigh Court, which is privately owned.
Facilities: On Sundays between 26th May and 25th August (inclusive), neighbouring St Edburga Church will be serving cream teas in the afternoons between 3pm and 5pm. Further afield Witley Court has a shop, a tearoom and toilet facilities.
Please be aware: English Heritage does not permit drone flying from or over sites in our care, except by contractors or partners undertaking flights for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and permissions, and are operating under controlled conditions.
