CD Hood commercial and domestic builders in Cambridge are delighted to have been awarded a new contract to refurbish a grand design style house opposite the Burwell Windmill Museum in Cambridge.
The refurbishment will include a loft conversion and a beautiful extension. As experience builders in Cambridge, our customers feel assured that we keep to a strict time scales and budgets.
As we will be working opposite the Burwell Windmill over the next couple of months we have decided to do a bit of research into its history.
The museum is a Grade II listed building, the site originally included a 200 year old timber framed barn which was homed in another village, taken down and then erected on the windmill’s site. In 1982, Burwell Museum Trust was formed by a few people who felt passionate about preserving the windmill.
The aim of the trust was to set up a museum open to the public, so that they would be able to offer visitors a glimpse of how it used to be. In 1992, after 10 years of fundraising the building and museum was opened.
Since the opening of the Burwell Museum, it has expanded to include more building from the local area, which have been reconstructed on the original site, or they have been built in the local style from reclaimed local or new materials.
If you would like to visit this wonderful site they are open Thursdays, Sunday and Bank Holidays and Easter Sunday to the last Sunday in October. A great way to introduce kids to our old windmills. For more info. why not visit their website @ http://www.burwellmuseum.org.uk.btck.co.uk/
