Back to the future at Sandfields

As each day passes at Sandfields Barn, what stood on the site more than a century ago becomes easier to comprehend.

The reinstatement of the original link between barns is now clear to see and progress on site is now motoring. The roof is on and the beautiful hand crafted oak windows installed.

Groundworks have been keeping us busy, but the services are now live. A sewage treatment plant is sitting comfortably underground, along with a rainwater harvesting system. We are looking forward to admiring the green roof that will blend the full-height glazed link into the rolling landscape.

Stand inside the brick barn and the beauty of the oak beams is already apparent; soon to be a cosy snug with log burning fire. The locally sourced lias stone will remain exposed throughout.

The moat is now dug out and with the century-old well now re-excavated and walls rebuilt, the outside space is beginning to take shape.

With the sun shining at Sandfields Barn it’s easy to imagine what life will be like here.
