Wimpole's Shire horse project

Walking a shire horse across the farmyard at Wimpole Home Farm

Our heavy horses are going to get some new stabling that will allow the horses to be housed together for the first time and provide a better viewing area for our visitors.

If you like to see the Shires at Wimpole you might have noticed there is a limited view of the horses whilst they stand in their stalls, you usually see a horses backside.  The Shire horse team also work in three areas of the farm as there is no dedicated area to run daily events and demonstrations for visitors to watch.

What's the plan?

Building works and stabling will allow the horses to be housed together for the first time and allow the staff the space to operate form one area considerably improving their safety, efficiency and the improve the experience for our visitors.

What happens next?

Plans have been approved by South Cambs District Council  so the works are out for tender then the build phase will start.
