Just over 4 years ago this was a working barn full of cattle and hay, says Linda Clegg as she describes her home at Talbot Fold Barn. What was the dairy is now the kitchen but while the Aga and dresser unit still give it the homely, traditional air of a dairy, the rest is crisp and clean and completely modern.
When Linda and her husband Derek took on the task of converting the barn, its location alone provided further challenges. Its in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so we couldnt alter anything from the original barn, Linda explains. Everything that was here has had to be reused but I like the idea of making everything look exactly like it was. The best example is the huge floor-to-ceiling windows which run from our lounge through the master bedroom with double doors opening onto the elements and during winter you can see to the local landmark Pendle Hill everything revolves around that because its famous for the witches of Pendle!
