The berrycroft hub
The Hub is a converted old dairy on Berrycroft Farm with a large court yard for parking, several outdoor teaching spaces and a well equipped indoor classroom that can also be hired for talks and small events. There are catering facilities providing self service tea, coffee, water, biscuits and cakes which is regularly refreshed throughout the day. Lunches are not provided on workshops or courses unless stated and local professional catering can be booked for events if required.
As well as hosting a variety of courses, workshops, photo shoots and events, the Hub is also an active scientific research centre for university students studying a variety of subjects from archaeology, geology, agriculture, biodiversity and ecosystem services to working out practically how to implement management plans such as dung beetle conservation and restoring calcareous grassland. We welcome all kinds of research projects and students have the use of not only field sites, a fully equipped laboratory, onsite accommodation and plenty of support but also a seemingly unlimited supply of potential research ideas we have ourselves.
