Have you heard about the latest items to arrive in Dronfield Hall Barn’s gift shop?

Among the new items include DHB branded pens and cotton shoppers as well as a wonderful selection of gift cards. Some have been designed by This Painting Malarkey – a local group of artists who exhibited at the barn earlier this year – while others have been designed by Sheffield artist Marion Rout. You can see more examples of her work on her website. Prices range from 99p for the pens, to £5 for three cards.



Also available is Issue 29 of Old Dronfield Miscellany, which you can buy from the website too for £3.

Other books on sale include the the last books to be published by the late David Hey. David was a well-known local historian who was heavily involved with Dronfield Heritage Trust prior to the barn opening. He passed away in February after a short illness.


Warm thanks also to the Ramsden family who have kindly donated Fanshawe Gate Hall books that were written by Cynthia Ramsden. Cynthia lived all her life in North Derbyshire, and she became a passionate garden. She died in August aged 85.

Fanshawe Gate Hall is one of the most popular private gardens in the county, and has had thousands of visitors over the years. You can read her stories from the garden in two books, A garden in my life (2001) and Garden Tales (2009) which cost £10 individually or £15 together.


Carole Slinn’s book A History of Dronfield in a Quilt and DVD also remain available for purchase from the barn or via the shop page of the website.
