Abstract

Kelmscott Manor is best known as the country home of William Morris, where he lived from 1871 until his death in 1896. A programme to refurbish one of the main barns at Kelmscott prompted a programme of archaeological building recording by the Oxford Archaeological Unit prior to and during the refurbishment. Although it is an impressive and attractive building it is of significance more for its historical association with Kelmscott Manor and for forming part of a good group of buildings constructed in tlte local Cotswold vernacular style than, for any particular intrinsic architechtural significance held by the barn.
