Bridgend Farmhouse dates back to the very early 19th century and was a working farm up until the 1970’s, eventually falling derelict with the last farmers leaving in 2000.
The exhibition shares the history of how the building and the lands were transformed over a period of years through the commitment and determination of local volunteers. Our exhibition is a celebration of the power of communal action and the profound impact it has on shaping our shared spaces.

- Volunteer Activity Days on Wednesday and Sunday 11-3pm
- Community Gardening Days Tuesdays and Fridays 10-3pm
