Swalcliffe Tithe Barn

At the west end of the village stands Swalcliffe tithe barn, an impressive 15th century traditional Tithe Barn. Built in 1401-1407 this is considered one of the best examples of a medieval tithe barn in England and features an almost completely intact medieval timber half-cruck roof. The barn is open free of charge on Sundays from Easter to October and houses part of the Oxfordshire Museum's collection of traditional agricultural and trade vehicles and an exhibition of 2,500 years of Swalcliffe history. for more info and opening times click here

Swalcliffe Church Tower Appeal Update

It is very exciting that the urgent repair work to the church tower is to start very shortly. Since originally launching the appeal it has become apparent (due to small falls of masonry) that the high levels windows in the knave require immediate attention and as such internal scaffolding will be going up in the church in May so that these repairs can be completed.  The remaining work which has been agreed with English Heritage will then start in late July and that is when the external scaffolding will be erected.  Unfortunately not all the urgent repair work can be included in this application with English Heritage and it is the PCC's intention to reapply for a further grant later this year to cover the outstanding work.  The PCC would like to whole heartedly thank the village and the fundraising committee for their amazing ongoing support. The Annual reports and accounts can be found by clicking here.


“This historic church in Swalcliffe is a distinguishing landmark  for many miles. There has been a church here for at least a 1,000 years.”
Colin Hill


This church would make an ideal film location.
