About this space

The Barrel Store is located in the Still Building which runs alongside the Western Line train track. This historic space exudes character with original wooden interior roof framing, windows, and brick walls. Reinforced and strengthened in the mid-2000s saw the installation of concrete walls and floors, and industrial heavy-duty steel beams.

The footprint of the space is long and narrow with an entrance door at one end and original large wooden barn-style sliding doors at the other secured with chunky chain and padlock. These open onto the exterior wooden deck and bench seats perfect to enjoy during warmer months.

It is frequently used for private events (subject to approval), film, music, photography shoots, exhibitions, and weddings, as well as a making and studio space.
