The Wain House Hellens, Nr Much Marcle Herefordshire


The Wain HouseThe Wain house is part of a complex of listed farm buildings located at Hellens, a country estate near the village of Much Marcle in Herefordshire.

The main house is Grade II* Listed and dates from 16th Century. It is in the care of a Charitable Trust with the objectives of preserving and restoring the property for the benefit of the public, providing facilities for community events, education and performances.

The Trust has embarked on a programme of repairs and adaptations to the house and its outbuildings intended to bring the redundant buildings back into use, while still retaining the character that the buildings have acquired from regular use.

The Wain House InteriorThe works to the Wain House are part of this programme and involved the full repair of the dilapidated timber frame structure and the adaptation of the interior to provide function and reception space.

The repairs and adaptation were achieved using traditional repair techniques and renewable materials such as sheep’s wool insulation and limecrete floor, creating a permeable structure and eliminating the need for vapour barriers and damp proof membranes.
