|Location||West Bradley, Somerset, England|
|Official name: Court Barn, West Bradley|
|Designated||2 June 1961|
West Pennard Court Barn (which is also known as the Court Barn, West Bradley) is a 15th-century tithe barn for Glastonbury Abbey between West Pennard and West Bradley in the English county of Somerset. It is a Grade I listed building.
The barn was restored in the 1930s by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, with the work being funded by Roger Clark of the local shoemakers C. & J. Clark who bought the derelict barn for £5. It has been owned by the National Trust since 1938. The upper floor has an unusual floor made of compacted earth.
The rectangular five bay stone barn is supported by buttresses. It is 50 feet (15 m) long and 20 feet 6 inches (6.25 m) wide. The roof was originally thatched but is now tiled. The carriage porch where wagons would have been unloaded is covered by the sloping roof.
