Without your involvement, we would not have been able to achieve the fantastic end result that we have – and that which has been remarked upon by all who have visited the site.

Dogs Trust Barns

The Dog’s Trust is a national charity founded in 1891 with the aim of protecting dogs from torture and ill-usage of every kind, which today has a membership of over 300,000 members.


Carpenter Oak & Woodland was asked to dismantle, restore and re-erect the main timbered barn at the site, which dated back to the 16th Century. This now acts as the Dogs Trust visitor centre. We also carried out general repairs and maintenance on a series of other, more modern, outbuildings. These restored barns now provide new kennels and a reception area totalling 1,700sq m.
