Dronfield Hall Barn

Dronfield Hall Barn was donated to the Peel Centre Charitable Trust by Sainsbury Supermarkets in 2005 and is now in the care of the Dronfield Heritage Trust. The inside of the barn displays some fine crown post roof trusses. The building is believed to have been part of the original medieval hall. When the new hall was built the redundant hall was used as a barn.

The building is part of the Dronfield Heritage Project and has been converted into a community hall and arts centre. A mezzanine floor has been inserted wich increases the space for meetings and exhibitions. The barn is also available for hire as a wedding venue.
