    Marvellous improvements since Joint Trusts struggled to maintain the property in the 90s and my car could just about find its own way from Settle to Airton as I kept in touch with the wardens.

    The wonderful improvement works have meant a real renaissance for both the historic Quaker Meeting House and the so-called Barn which is now a comfortable, well-furnished modern venue. It is so incredibly peaceful there. What a tonic for our often shredded nerves.
