Our 17th Century Barn is located in the Goosecroft Recreation Ground, off Beech Road. It was originally built as part of the Purley Park estate, and has been moved twice since.  It has been at Goosecroft since 1992 and has two halls which can be booked together or separately.  WiFi access is available in the small Barn and part of the large Barn. All enquiries should be directed to the Amenities Officer who manages it in behalf of the Parish Council.  He may be contacted on 0118 984 4507 or e-mail the Amenities Office using this contact form.
