The Aisled Barn is a 16th century building that Moore had moved the estate and reconstructed in 1981. Today it houses unique tapestries - based on original drawings - which Moore commissioned from West Dean College. 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.
