Ashleworth Tithe Barn is a large 15th-century tithe barn located at Ashleworth, Gloucestershire, England, standing close to the River Severn.[1]

The barn was built about 1500 by the canons of St Augustine's, Bristol, and has ten interior bays. It has a stone-tiled roof.

After the Dissolution of the Monasteries the barn passed into secular use. It was acquired by the National Trust in 1956.
