The Barn Club – Robert Somerville

Barn Club is an inspiring tale of craft, nature, landscape and community.

 When life-long craftsman Robert Somerville moved to Hertfordshire from Devon, he discovered an unexpected landscape rich with wildlife and particularly elm trees. Nestled within London’s commuter belt, the wooded rolling hills inspired Robert, a lifelong woodworker, to revive the ancient tradition of hand-raising barns.

 Barn Club follows the building of Carley Barn, over the course of one year. Volunteers from all walks of life joined Robert’s barn club, inspired to learn this ancient skill of building by hand, at its own quiet pace and in the company of others.
