Conversion of the barn at Totties is now complete

  • November 25, 2019

Thanks to the South Pennines Leader Programme the conversion of our barn is now complete and was part funded by The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

After many a delay with the conversion over the summer months we are pleased to share we have held our 1st workshop in the barn. Electric installed, new concert pad, insulated roof and wall panels installed we are now operational.

Converting the barn into a functional space is going to provide us with many opportunities for exciting and interesting events such as craft experience days and workshops and the ability to work more closely with the local community and more effectively with our local schools.

As well as craft workshop the barn will be used to house our part funded wood processing machine which arrived on site in March. We have already taken delivery of over 100 tonnes of wood. Since June, we have processed over 70 cu/m of firewood into logs and engaged two employees in this area.
