Foulden Tithe Barn

  • 4m south-east of Chirnside on the A6105



See a rare example of a tithe barn – a building constructed to store agricultural production tithes given to the Church.

Church tithes, or teind, required 10 per cent of all agricultural produce, such as crops or beasts, to be given to the church. These would then be stored in buildings like Foulden Tithe Barn.

We don’t know when the barn was built, but it’s certainly not medieval. It is a good example of modern vernacular architecture, featuring attractive arched openings at first-floor level.
