Strid Wood

Strid Wood Visitors Centre

This specialist project had many unique and obscure features and was designed to be sympathetic to its idyllic woodland setting. The stonework façade to the superstructure is dry walled with the majority of the stone being individually dressed, to ensure minimal bed and perp joints.

The octagonal lantern feature to the main hall was specifically fabricated off site in our joinery manufacturing workshop, as were many other of the bespoken features, including the oak frame, the octagonal douglas fir posts mounted on stylobats supporting the canopy and the shop fittings internally. Under floor heating and sympathetic landscaping finished the building, which when completed was opened by the Duchess of Devonshire. The building has since been ‘Highly Commended’ by the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
