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, sadly for us, has just retired.

1 Waggon Shed


Where the farm waggons were kept, this fine unit has all facilities and a small entrance lobby.  It also has large double doors opening out to the farmyard. Totalling 648 sq ft, it is ideal for a 3-4 person business or good sized studio.  Currently being vacated by Bower Bakery who are downsizing to No. 2 next door, this unit will be available from October.  To enquire, please phone 01460 241062, or email to:

Bower Bakery

Peter, our wonderful artisan baker, is currently downsizing into this smaller unit (265 sq ft) to take some pressure off this retirement enterprise. He 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.
