2016 Restoration

ShedBlend-med.jpg

Refurbishing the fabric of the 1889 railway building is the first phase of its regeneration as a community arts, entertainment and social venue for the area.

The work and changes were planned by local practice Clark & Maslin and carried out by Stonewood Builders between June 2016 and February 2017.

Externally, the building was re-roofed, damaged brickwork repaired, and a new annexe built at the south end (using matching materials) to house a kitchen and services. A small steel and glass foyer in front of the massive loading bay doors creates a weather tight public entrance to the auditorium.

Inside, the building is fully-insulated and warmed by an underfloor heating system.

Phase 1 was formally opened by HRH The Prince of Wales on 22 December 2016.
