The barn is the only surviving building from what was a royal manor up to the time of Henry VIII, which was granted to Anne of Cleeves at the annulment of their marriage in 1540. The scale and construction indicate a royal building of the time of Henry VIII, but it is also possible that it relates to the period of Anne of Cleeves and is the work of continental craftsmen.
