Tithe Barn, Pilton

The Tithe Barn at Cumhill Farm in Pilton, England, was built in the 14th century as a tithe barn to hold produce for Glastonbury Abbey. It is Scheduled Ancient Monument; the others are the Tithe Barn, Manor Farm, the West Pennard Court Barn and the Glastonbury tithe barn, now the Somerset Rural Life Museum. The barn, of coursed and squared rubble, was built in the 14th and 15th centuries to hold the produce from farms in the area who paid one tenth of their produce to Glastonbury Abbey as the landowner, it is one of four surviving monastic barns built by the Abbey. On 9 June 1963 lightning set fire to the thatched roof and it remained a wreck until Michael Eavis, organiser of the Glastonbury Festival, bought it in 1995, presented the barn to the Pilton Barn Trust; the project was made possible with a grant of £400,000 from English Heritage. The Glastonbury festival contributed a further £100,000. A new roof, replicating the original, using a combination of traditional carpentry techniques and modern technology, has been built, by Peter McCurdy using skills used when recreating the Globe theatre in London, from English oak which came from Northumberland.

The roof frame consists of cruck construction which sit high in the walls with an arcade plate carrying the apex of the roof above. McCurdy was assisted by a local team run by Jon Maine who designed and erected the complex scaffolding both internally and externally and using 8000 36" long oak hand split battens tiled the roof using over 30,000 hand made plain tiles. In addition to the new roof a new floor was laid, including a 3 metres wide strip in Blue Lias Stone and 44 cubic meters of lime concrete used to fill the expanses either side, it is said to be the largest expanse of lime concrete flooring anywhere in Europe. The restoration was nominated for the annual Wood Awards, which recognise and encourage outstanding design and installation in joinery and structures in wood, it was awarded the prize as the Best Use of British Timber Award and Structural Timber Award in 2005. It received the Royal Institute of British Architects Town and Country Design Award in the same year, it was opened on Friday 1 April 2005 by local historian Sir John Keegan and is now used for public events such as medieval fairs, weddings, Somerset Arts Week and village events.
