The Yard

Chedham's Yard is a prize-winning heritage site. It has recently been restored and is now open to the public every Saturday from April/May to September.

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 passed away in 2012 shortly after the Yard opened to the public. The Yard is crammed with tools, equipment and items made at or maintained 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.
