Craven Arms cruck barn


Went to Appletreewick and had a meal in the newly built cruck barn extension with an after dinner talk about its construction. Unfortunately they were selling some rather good Hetton Brewery ale, so I promptly forgot about my camera, and pictures of the inside will have to wait for another visit. It’s just in the next village to Bolton Abbey where I work and the timber was extracted from Strid Wood, even using the old horse and logging arch! It’s a great building in true vernacular tradition using local materials e.g. local wool for the roof insulation and a heather thatch.

Here’s their own website: Craven Arms.
