The Barn and the outlying buildings seem to be visited at night by littering and drinking youth and this appears to be a more frequent occurrence. We have therefore decided to reduce the display period this year by ten days to the dates above so as to reduce exposure and risk of possible vandalism.
This is an event which is much enjoyed year by year by families and especially children from all over the Vale and by National Trust visitors to the Barn and we are very anxious to ensure that this tradition is maintained without harm, for the enjoyment of many. We hope that your evening walks might include the Barn.
If there is a problem the guidance we have is to ring the police on 101 to report damage or an incident which has already occurred or late night noise but to ring 999 if an incident is actually happening or there is smoke or fire.
