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.
BEFORE YOU GO
Opening Times: the barn is open daily, 10am-6pm from April to October, and 10am-4pm from November to March. View details.
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: Nearby Witley Court has a shop, a tearoom and toilet facilities.
PLAN A GREAT DAY OUT
The dramatic ruins and stunning gardens of Witley Court, gutted by fire in the 1930s, are less than a 30 minute drive away from Leigh. See the spectacular fountain, pick up a free audio tour and take a walk in the woodlands in Witley's vast parklands. There's also a shop and an independently-run tearoom.
The peaceful remains of Edvin Loach Old Church are a short drive away.
