Building the Footprint

Almost 10 years ago, in June 2007 the construction of the Footprint building was completed. It was the first building in Cumbria to be constructed with straw bale walls, and the first of its kind built anywhere by the National Trust. It took a whole community, lots of passion and hard work to make it happen. Here's a time-lapse of the build.
