raised of £6,000 target by 22 supporters

    Weʼve raised £935 to restore and re-glaze the medieval window, originally from Keynsham Abbey, in the gable of our grade II listed farmhouse.

    Bell Farm, Woollard
    Funded on Monday, 2nd October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Bell Farm was in desperate need of renovation when we took it on in 2015. Having done the urgent jobs, we now want to restore the medieval window which has its own history!

    Keynsham Abbey was dissolved in 1539. The first records of stone sales from the Abbey are in 1579. One of the triple, stone mullioned windows was re-located to the 14th Century gable wall of Bell Farm, Woollard. It is likely that the house was either a Priest's house or a Chantry at the time.

    We have restored much of the house, making sure the walls are likely to stay up another 400 years, and have made some urgent repairs to the stonework of the medieval window, but also want to re-glaze it and repair the mullions, returning it to its previous glory.

    We are using this crowdfunding page instead of a wedding list. We would be delighted if you would help us fund the window, making a lasting change to a wonderful part of our national heritage. Please don't be daunted by the target price - we have got used to the cost of careful, considerate restoration - anything that you can give will be hugely appreciated (and we certainly don't need any more toasters).

      Chris and Sarah took on the renovation of Bell Farm in Woollard in 2015. So far they have re-roofed, re-wired, rebuilt two chimney stacks, sured-up the masonry, repaired rotten windows and installed a heat pump to dry the property out and to keep it dry; parts are now habitable!
