A former ‘airing shelter’ from Barnsley Hall Hospital, Bromsgrove, the county lunatic asylum built in 1907, has become the latest building to be erected at Avoncroft. Dismantled by Kier Construction in February re-erection was finished in April. Avoncroft is now seeking further funding to construct new pathways and restore the shelter to its original appearance.
