Tithe Barn

Hob Uid: 44213
Location :

Bury
Grid Ref : SD7951807626
Summary : The tithe barn is a single storey stone building of three bays with a wide door and other smaller openings on the gable end. With the exception of some modifications the barn has remained largely unaltered since its construction. The tithe barn is of a single build using composite walling materials and is constructed with an inner and outer leaf or skin, random rubble coursing being common to both skins. This type of construction is common in the Pennine foothills between 1600 and 1720, these date have been suggested for the construction of the tithe barn due to the lack of documentary sources. The tithe barn is constructed of at least two different kinds of sandstone and has an old stone slab roof. The barn may have been used for the storage of animals as well as crops. In the 20th century the barn was converted into a garage, restoration of the building was proposed in 1992.
More information : SD 7952 0763. Tithe barn at the bottom of Bury Street,
"One of the oldest buildings in Radcliffe" (a). No information as
to date. Length 12.6m, width 9.1m, retains its probable original
roofing timbers although the roof is of modern slate. It is
now used as a garage. (1)

The barn is constructed of red sandstone blocks.
A possible original entrance survives on the south gable, to
the east of this entrance is a niche blocked with brick, also
on the south wall is a square window blocked with brick. The
eastern wall has an entrance blocked with brick.

It is probable that the roof timbers are original. Most of the
roof is covered by large sandstone slates, in places patched with
slate. (2)
