History of the Engine Yard

The Engine Yard is a series of buildings originally used as workshops by the specialist tradesmen who were brought in to produce furniture, windows and doors during the construction of the present Castle in the early 1800s. These have now been lovingly restored and renovated to create this unique rural retail village.
