Somerset based artist Gillian Widden is created a number of artworks inspired by the barn, including a series of bushel baskets in a range of sizes from one bushel down to a hundredth of a bushel.

‘Following the Norman Conquest, the bushel basket was introduced as a form of measurement for dry goods such as grain or peas, and so would have been in frequent use during the early life of the Tithe barn.
