Focus expands into converted barn

Focus Experiential Training has expanded and moved to a new facility which has been created by combining a marriage of traditional stone with contemporary cedar boarding.


The Ribble Valley firm had been operating from a beautifully converted 17th century barn, located down the lane, for more than 20 years.

This new conversion is to give greater flexibility of use to the beautiful barn and location.

The new building has been built using sustainable building practices and is set amongst the 360 acres of farmland with amazing views across open fields to Pendle Hill. It is now providing the perfect spot for training, workshops, conferences, meetings and private functions.

Harry and Jane Backhouse, owners of The Out Barn at Clough Bottom, Bashall Eaves said: “We have been overwhelmed by the positive comments from our clients. It has made the project, which has been tough at times, all worthwhile and we are looking forward to a successful 2014. The Out Barn is a true statement of our personal values.”
