The Haywain Barn

Complete timber frame repair of a disused outbuilding

An exciting project at Hellens Manor House, Much Marcle. The Pennington Mellor Munthe Charitable Trust has put in place a programme of works to bring the redundant farm buildings at Hellens back into use. The Haywain Barn project involved repairing and adapting the barn to provide function space for small groups.
