Tithe Barn Tours

The Tithe Barn's Trustees take a look at the architectural features of the medieval barn, and explain more about its use as a school since Hannah More founded the Nailsea Great School which opened on the site in 1792.  


Did you know at first she only had the small room at the end over a stable? The school became Nailsea's only secondary school until Backwell was built in 1953.  


Daytime and evening tours available. Tours can be arranged at times to suit groups - local societies looking for something different for a meeting?  


Join us for an informal, interesting, hour followed by light refreshments and a chance to ask questions and share your memories of the area.
