Travers Nettleton: “The concept behind The Barrs Yard Artisans Collective was to establish on one easily accessible site a collection of likeminded people who believe in producing the highest quality products and services and who collectively can benefit from each other and appeal to a wide variety of visitors to the yard.”

Already proving to be a huge attraction for, both local and visitors from further afield, the collective businesses run a varied number of events each month ranging from wine tastings and cookery demonstrations through to art exhibitions and special sales evenings.
