The Swalcliffe Society

CONTACT: O1295 788127

Committee members: Jeff Demmar, Cathy Stoertz & Colin Hill, Helen Argyros-Farrel

The Society’s aims include increasing the awareness of the village’s history, by preserving and cataloguing the past and recording the present for future generations.
Currently only a small group of committee members, we are always looking to expand and invite anyone who is interested in helping us research and preserve our archives to get in touch.

Swalcliffe Barn

Constructed in 1401 for New College, Oxford, Swalcliffe tythe barn is a Grade 1 listed building and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. It was acquired by the Oxfordshire Buildings Trust in 1990 and is used by the Oxfordshire County Council Museums Service to exhibit agricultural and trade vehicles from the county. It also houses an exhibition of Swalcliffe’s history.

Our barn is open to the public on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from Easter until the end of October, from 2 – 5pm. The team of volunteer custodians is administered by the Swalcliffe Society on behalf of Oxfordshire County Council Museums Service. They welcome all visitors when the barn is open. Please contact the Swalcliffe Society if you would like to join this team.
