Nailsea Tithe Barn dates from 1480 and with Holy Trinity Church is part of Nailsea’s historic heart. A school for over 200 years, it is now fully restored to its medieval origins. The vaulted ceiling, stonework and owl & putlog holes are beautiful features along with the modern facilities you need.
The Coffee with Friends group will be welcoming old and new Friends to our monthly meeting, on Tuesday 5th March. This is very much a social gathering but also an opportunity to find out more about Nailsea and the Tithe Barn in particular. Having looked back to the Tithe Barn in the time of Hannah More, for the next few meetings we will be moving on to hear about Nailsea during wartime and the evacuees from London, who joined the Parochial School (Tithe Barn) at that time. We are lucky to have recordings of the memories of some of the evacuees as well as Nailsea 'natives'. They have fascinating memories to share!
More News! The Friends trip this year will be to St Fagans Open Air museum and will take place on Tuesday 11th June. There is likely to be space for non-members of the Friends group, so if you are interested in joining the trip contact Barbara at email@example.com
