Dunster Tithe Barn has been in existence since the 16th century - it has had a five year long restoration and is now a magnificent centre which may be hired for dinner/dances, parties and other celebrations, weddings, or, for instance, corporate meetings, antiques fairs, craft sales, horticultural shows and art exhibitions.

We also have a separate carpeted meeting room with surround sound which is available for hire for any type of meeting, childrens parties, table tennis and even a film club. We also have wireless broadband.

You can find out here about the whole project which ran from May 2002 until January 2007.

 

You can see what the new facilities are like and find out about arrangements for Hiring here.

The refurbished Tithe Barn

Dunster, in the English county of Somerset, is generally recognised as one of the most perfectly preserved mediaeval villages in the UK, with origins dating back to the Bronze and Iron Ages. Visitors to the village delight in seeing buildings which make the historic experience almost unique: Dunster Castle, St George's Church, the Yarn Market, the Dovecote, Butter Cross, Pack Horse Bridge, the working Water Mill, and Conygar Tower. The one historic building which was missing from this list, being neither accessible to the public nor in a good state of repair, is the early 16th century Tithe Barn, originally part of a Benedictine priory.

Dunster Tithe Barn - at the start

The aim of this project was to repair this Grade II Listed Building and make it accessible to the public, not only to house a permanent exhibition, but also to be available for various community events and functions.

The Centre is run by a Management Committee - see 'Contact us' for names and addresses.
