Dronfield Hall Barn

Dronfield Hall Barn was donated to the Peel Centre Charitable Trust by Sainsbury Supermarkets in 2005 and is now in the care of the Dronfield Heritage Trust. The inside of the barn displays some fine crown post roof trusses. The building is believed to have been part of the original medieval hall. When the new hall was built the redundant hall was used as a barn.

The building is now part of the Dronfield Heritage Project and will be converted into a community hall and arts centre. It is usually open on Heritage Open Days.
