Tithe Barn Heritage Open Day

Thank you to our volunteers and all the visitors that came to our Tithe Barn Heritage Open day on Saturday 9th September 2017. A brilliant day with visitors coming from as far a field as Edinburgh.

Plenty of Corn Dollies were made, so it should be a good harvest next year. An ancient tradition, as Corn dollies were made at Harvest time from the last sheaf of corn cut. The Corn Spirit was believed to live in the corn doll and was kept until the following spring and then ploughed into the first furrow to ensure a good harvest.
