Restoration works have started at Winterbourne Medieval Barn! This nationally significant building was built in 1342 which was just before the great plague. The Barn was commissioned by Thomas de Bradeston who was Lord of the Manor until his death in 1328.
West Waddy is working with Winterbourne Medieval Barn Trust (WMBT) and The National Lottery Heritage Lottery Fund to revitalise the whole complex into a community-led project based on heritage and food and farming education. The practice achieved planning permission and listed building consent for designs that were developed in close association with Historic England and building owners South Gloucestershire Council.
Works to the Barn and neighbouring outbuildings include works to conserve, restore, and reconfigure the complex to create a flexible, viable, and well utilised community asset. For further information on the project, visit the WMBT website by clicking here.
