Some of you will know the second barn as the main entrance to the west wing (the alternative being the ramp!) and the route to the terrace and fields.
As part of the work projects this year the second barn is undergoing a major refit to make it safer for us as we get older and for our visitors. So the uneven floor with drainage channel from the days when it used to house cattle is no more. Instead will be a tiled floor and plaster-boarded walls, revised lighting with more convenient switches and (hopefully) no more clutter. Without Alistair doing most of the hard work levelling the ready-mix concrete the rest would not have been possible!
I’ve been photographing some of the progress and updating this web site occasionally https://www.blackmores-online.info/Second_barn/index.html
