Guests from across Lancashire attended the official opening of two beautiful 17th Century stone barns which have been sensitively transformed to create a new venue in the heart of Bowland.


The Tithe Barn at Browsholme Hall, the ancient home of the Parker family, was opened by the Rt Hon the Lord Shuttleworth, Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire, during an evening which also featured a stunning exhibition of animal art by local painters.


The barn, licensed for weddings, receptions and events for up to 120 people, has exposed stone, oak beams and flagstone floors providing two magnificent spaces which can either be used together or on their own. The conversion has also provided a modern livestock unit for the tenant of the Home Farm, unsightly buildings have been removed and the early 19th century layout of the farmstead has been restored. Facilities, such as parking, have been improved for the thousands who visit the hall every year.
