Great Coxwell, Oxon. Tithe Barn
Another "Tithe Barn" that's not strictly speaking a tithe barn , this monastic edifice was built of cotswold rubble-stone near Faringdon. No hipped roof here, and only one door. It supplied the far-way Beaulieu Abbey , close to Southampton.
It now belongs tot the National Trust: if you are an architecture geek you could click on that link above to compare the interior of this barn with the Wanborough one. This has a 'Queen-post' roof and stone plinths for the supporting columns.
