How to find the Tithe Barn
Gate entrance is opposite No 2 Waterbeach Road, Landbeach, Cambridge, CB25 9FA. Walk along the grassed track by the hedge. Free road parking or no.9 stagecoach bus stops near Cockfen Lane.

The Landbeach Tithe Barn Trust believes the medieval Tithe barn, with thatched roof, brick threshing floor and timber granary, to be unique to Cambridgeshire and even of national significance. It is one of the few Tithe Barns in the country still standing next to its medieval rectory. Over 90% of Tithe Barns in the UK have been converted and their historic features are being lost forever. Sadly, the Landbeach Tithe Barn is in a poor condition and deteriorating.

You can help our restoration quest by sponsoring a sheaf for as little as £5 at www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/TitheBarnTrust

You can follow the Tithe Barn Trust on Twitter @TBarnT , or Instagram @tithebarntrust , like us on Facebook FriendsofLandbeachTitheBarn or visit www.tithebarntrust.org.uk to find out more about the Tithe Barn Trust and our events.
