The Victoria Barns development consists of 7 barns in a small complex within some 4 acres of land.

The 19th century barns have original features constructed of red brick, sandstone, plain tiles and king-post roofs. The barns are a great example of the farm buildings of lowland Staffordshire where locally procured, artisan materials added to the character of rural construction.

All of the barns have been completely refurbished with a complete strip out back to bare brick by local craftsmen. The bricks have been acid cleaned and repointed throughout.

The History

These Victorian barns were originally the project of an aristocrat of Staffordshire, Francis Monckton. He was a philanthropist committed to improving agriculture. He dreamt of these barns as the model production hub for the new century, the 20th century. They would work with the new farmhouse that he was creating, giving his tenant family, the new businessman farmer, the latest in agricultural techniques and processes. It was a mutually beneficial philanthropy - though – by giving the very best to his tenants he could command a better rent.

And, so it was that between 1900 and 1901 the complex of barns and this farmhouse were created. The buildings had high ceilings, were generously proportioned, airy and designed for the latest techniques in husbandry. The farmhouse was built at a time of renewal. The country had passed through an agricultural depression caused by the import of cheap grain from America and the new arrivals of frozen meats from the Antipodes. 

But by 1900 a new spirit of optimism was in the air. It was driven by the success of the industrial revolution and the demands of the new townsfolk sharing in fresh products delivered from model farms.
