About

A unique visitor attraction in a stunning oak-framed barn. Independent British artists, designers and makers regularly showcase their work to the public.

We are a growing community of over 60 artists, makers, foodies, educators, gardening history enthusiasts and volunteers. We are passionate about what we do and we want to share this with you.
