Tithe Barns of Devon by Joseph Rogers on Thursday, 7th March, 2024 at 7pm in The Devon Rural Archive.

Tithe Barns were medieval structures built to store tithes – a system of taxation enforced by the church whereby one tenth of a farmer’s produce was offered as payment. Joseph Rogers, author of the 2021 book Tithe Barns, talks about their origins and their use in later centuries with a focus on those in Devon and surrounding counties that remain today. Joseph lived in East Devon for 15 years and presented at Shilstone in March last year for the Buildings Section of the Devonshire Association.Tickets are £7.00 each, and must be purchased in advance.  To purchase a ticket please use the button below.
