We are delighted to announce that the new Box Moor Trust Centre is now complete. To reflect the style of the previous building, a farm barn, the design is very much that of the local vernacular with relatively few windows, a low brick plinth wall at the base, timber clad and a clay-tiled pitched roof. Externally, a section of knapped flint wall demonstrates a traditional building technique. The modern focus of the building is the two storey glazed atrium that will welcome visitors as they approach from the car park.
Inside wherever possible the green oak frame that is the Centre's skeleton is left exposed and the spaces within the frame are plastered. On the upper floor the range of oak roof trusses are visible and show the range of traditional designs.
Trustees look forward to welcoming local people and organisations to what they are sure will become a very active and exciting Centre over the coming years.
