In December we had a group of Masters students visit the Farm, to explore how defects and historic repairs have taken place in the buildings. As a member of the group, Ilan has kindly described his initial thoughts of the place.
“As a student of the MACAR at The University of Sheffield, I went to Barnes Hall Farm to do research on one of the listed buildings. It is definitely a rough gemstone, with the potential to become a fine jewel! For those like me who love history, architecture and naturally quiet areas but with the facilities of a city nearby, here you have precious pieces of old structures with an exquisite taste of melancholy to live in. The site has, beautiful views, spacious and luxury areas and a fabulous group of professionals behind this project. Definitely worth the visit!” Ilan Bitterman
