We have a small number of business properties across the Estate, ranging from a large car dealership, to converted farm buildings, such as Billy Bucks Barn, which is now offices.
Due to changes in farming practices, which have modernised and consolidated over the past 50 years, the use of farmsteads and their surrounding land has evolved.
Careful diversification and re-use of agricultural buildings for new rural business and job creation plays an important part in contributing to the success of the Estate as a whole. An example of our investment in diversification is at Bank Farm Livery Stables, Sherenden Lane, Tudeley.
In the longer term, we aim find sustainable, long term uses for redundant farm buildings to provide a range of business spaces, including offices and workshops to meet local demand and contribute to the rural economy.
