A change and an adventure.....

After seven busy years we are putting The Natural Building Centre on hold for a few years to take up a new exciting and challenging role. In early 2019 Sophie, Ned and the children are moving to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), a legendary place of pilgrimage which lies a few miles off the coast of the Lleyn Peninsular in North West Wales.

The Island is famous for its spiritual history, its wildlife and its unspoilt landscape, and as island managers we will be living and working there year round as custodians, representing the Bardsey Island Trust, and in particular taking care of its Grade II listed buildings. We will be bringing to the Island our expertise in conservation, and our enthusiam for repairing traditional buildings in a sensitive and sustainable way.

About the Natural Building Centre

We believe that everyone can learn the skills required to carry out authentic and lasting repairs to their historic structures, which respect the tradition, aesthetics and fabric of the original architecture. These include the practical techniques needed, as well as a foundation knowledge of the right materials and how to source them. Most of all, our ethos is all about a sustianable future for traditional building, whether thats keeping valuable skills alive or using local materials that are readily available, and avoiding wherever possible expensive packaged product, which is heavy on plastic and road miles.
