The Aisled Barn is a 16th century building that Moore had moved the estate from a nearby farm and reconstructed in 1981. Today it houses a set of unique tapestries - based on original drawings - which Moore commissioned from West Dean College in Sussex. The weavers worked with his original drawings and photographs to dye the wool accurately and achieve the precise colours and effects of his different drawing media.

The Aisled Barn can also be hired for weddings and private events, please see our Weddings & special events page for more information.

When the Aisled Barn is in use for a private event, it is closed to visitors. The list of closed dates for 2021 is as follows, please check the list before your visit, as we update it frequently.
