Wentes Meadow Community Barn

• Presteigne, Powys

There are a lot of things to be proud of in our local community. None more so than the coming together of creativity and endeavour and manifesting in the form of Presteigne’s new Community Barn.

One good idea from Owen Rimmington, and a fag-packet design, fired everyone’s interest and before we had even considered the impossibility of undertaking such a monumental task, wheels started to turn.

Money was raised and pledged, permissions granted, designs finalised, helpers mustered.

An extraordinary concerted effort over a number of months saw the groundworks completed, the hybrid larch and steel frame erected and the roofing sheets and cladding applied.

We played our part and built the timber frame and oversaw the safe raising of the main structure.

The barn was completed in time for the Presteigne Carnival and was universally enjoyed by young and old.

People power!
