Orchard Barn Reinstatement - Sarah Partridge - BS30

Orchard Barn is a community project in Suffolk to restore and reinstate a beautiful barn, and now the reinstatement of our 1580 Suffolk Long House. OBee Community Interest Company uses low-tech and traditional construction projects as a way of bringing people together to learn.


This episode we are speaking with Sarah Partridge of Orchard Barn - http://orchardbarn.org.uk/ 
Orchard barn is an off grid restoration project that is rebuilding a barn and long house using the traditional tools and techniques that were used to build it the first time round. 

In March 2017 planning permission was granted for the reinstatement of the ruined Suffolk Long House at Orchard Barn.  The reinstatement in a 'like for like' manner uses local trees, traditional techniques, tools and a collaborative approach to working together.
