The Gloucestershire village of Sapperton is intimately connected with three Arts and Crafts architects and designers: Ernest Gimson (1864-1919), Ernest Barnsley (1863-1926) and his younger brother Sidney Barnsley (1865-1926).
Sapperton Village Hall was given to the people of Sapperton in 1969 by the 8th Earl Bathurst.
Ernest Barnsley was commissioned by Lilias, Countess Bathurst to design a building for use by the local community in 1912. The site chosen was the former village wheelwrights yard on which Gimson had set up a smithy in 1903. Sapperton Village Hall still stands on this site 100 years later.
The Hall has a Grade II listing and is set in the stunning Village of Sapperton in the heart of the Cotswolds, only yards from the Church.
