Welcome to Chedham's Yard
Chedham’s Yard is a prize-winning heritage site. It has recently been restored and is now open to the public May - September on a pre-booked basis.
Hidden away in Wellesbourne in Warwickshire it is a well-kept secret - a blacksmith’s and wheelwright’s workshop dating from the early 19th century.
The Yard was run by five generations of the Chedham family, the last of whom, Bill Chedham recently passed away. The Yard is crammed with tools, equipment and items made on site along with the materials to make them.
The Yard has been restored with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and BBC Restoration after it beat churches, chapels and a gallery to win the BBC Restoration Village television programme in 2006.
