The Waggon Shed

Just beyond the archway and heading out towards the paddock is the Waggon Shed.  In fact it's two buildings now joined together with a central stairwell.  The left hand was a granary above and the waggon garage below, which was then converted into airy loose boxes where we fattened our pigs.  The right hand building was the flax retting shed (where the flax was soaked so that the fibre could be combed out) - we kept our flock of free range hens in here.  Both buildings were converted by John Wratten, our longest standing tenant, who now occupies the Apple Store.

Bower Bakery

The ground floor of the Waggon Shed (almost 650 sq ft) is converted to an artisan bakery.  Peter Hill uses organic stone-ground flour (though the bakery is not itself certified organic) to produce a fabulous range of breads and pasties, plus goodies like croissants and Eccles cakes.  He has stalls at various farmers' markets and sells in our closest shop, the Trading Post.

Intrasights (www.intrasights.co.uk)

Where flax once soaked and then hens roosted, Harry Truman services and repairs optical instruments - binoculars, telescopes and microscopes.  He also has an extensive range of second hand binoculars for sale.  And with the view from this small ground floor unit towards Chiselborough, it's the perfect place to test all these binoculars and telescopes!
