Heath Village Barn

Heath and Reach Community Hall, known to local residents as ‘The Barn’ is a registered charity. In 1937, Mrs Fanny Hickman donated the building and its outside area to the residents of Heath and Reach. The building was once part of a working farm, now 13 & 15 Leighton Road. It is over 150 years old and was used as an agricultural store for farm equipment.

There was a large Cow Byre attached to the rear of the building, between the current hall and stables. Unfortunately, it was in unsafe and beyond economic repair and has now been removed. 

A volunteer committee manages the finances and day-to-day running of The Barn.

At The Barn, we provide

  • Baby changing facilities, potties and step-stools.
  • Effective heating throughout the premises.
  • Off-road parking, more limited on-site  car parking spaces.
