This unique project is part of the wider regeneration of the centre of Woolsery village, injecting new life into the tired and derelict listed buildings that were historically so significant to village life. The village pub is the first phase. Some of the many challenges included excavating a new basement less than one metre away from the existing listed building that had cob walls and no foundations. This required careful planning and monitoring however it was completed successfully and added a crucial 100sq. m of service space for the business. The project involved both the renovation of the existing listed cob building as well as creating a lofty new barn extension to maximise light and space.
