About this project
ECTON FARM HAY BARN NEW BUILD
Situated within The Peak District National Park, adjacent to the SSSI protected Ecton Copper Mines and within the immediate context of a listed farm group the design and positioning of this agricultural building were important planning considerations.
The new barn was required to provide much needed storage for winter feed, and therefore the location of the barn had to remain central to the farm.
A familiar sight within the landscape, this type of steel framed building is common place within the farming community providing cost effective accommodation when compared to building new barns in stone.
The external cladding materials were chosen to compliment the landscape and surrounding farm buildings and included; locally sourced limestone walling, ‘Yorkshire’ timber boarding and blue-grey Farm scape fibre cement sheets to the roof.
Project type: Hay Barn, listed site
