Bishop Wilton-New Village Hall

The aim of the project was to create a new community building to service the parish of Bishop Wilton and the wider community beyond.  Such a provision was identified as being key to addressing the rural isolation that could otherwise occur in the outlying community.

The completed project saw the dilapidated village hall and out-dated sports pavilion replaced by one new and environmentally friendly, fit for purpose facility with a range of distinct characteristics beyond those typically found in a conventional village hall.

Main hall

The new facility is for the benefit of the local and surrounding communities of Bishop Wilton with a modern highly efficient community facility which would be available to all. This type of building could prove to be a very good example to other village hall committees who are looking at new builds.

External view of the new hall

Bishop Wilton Hall is a fantastic new multi-purpose facility set at the foot of the scenic Yorkshire Wolds. It has been built as both a central hub for local community activities as well as an idyllic venue for broader educational, business and recreational use.

Its eco-friendly, flexible design offers a safe, comfortable and adaptable building facility which can easily accommodate a wide variety of needs. From small formal meetings to events for 100 plus.
