Mud and Stud Barn

  • Client:
    Witham Trading Company
  • Local Authority:
    East Lindsey District Council

The Brief

Globe were asked to provide the client with planning advice, as well as completing the application process for this unusual project. The client wanted to replace the old barn on their site with a new ‘mud and stud’ barn, the first to be built in Lincolnshire for 300 years. This would be used as an educational centre within Natural England’s Higher Level Stewardship Scheme.

Our Role

Globe worked with Inhabit Architectural Design and Planning to provide a comprehensive integrated planning statement to present and explain the case for development. Working from the client’s brief, Globe explained the vast cultural and educational contribution this development would make.

Outcomes

The scheme was successfully awarded planning permission, and now provides valuable educational resources in the county. This facility provides learners with a valuable insight into the heritage of the local area, including farming and traditional building techniques. As well as educating the public about the countryside and the inner workings of Abbey Farm, the barn will also create a better experience for those visiting other heritage sites in the area, such as Kirkstead Abbey.
