Vision Of The Winsford Trust

To make the “Winsford” a community hub focussed on the legacy of its local heritage, inspired by its influential architect CFA Voysey and its unique place in the Arts & Crafts movement, whilst remaining fully accessible to the people of North Devon.


To ensure that this distinctive community building is fully restored, remains in public ownership and provides a base for activities that will enrich the life of local people and a wider audience, and builds on community strengths and partnerships by celebrating the past and promoting the future.


  • To be a financially self-sufficient centre, that is run by the community for the community.
  • To create a fully accessible archive of the buildings heritage and history that will act as the core of its educational resource.
  • To ensure that the building is used to its full potential by community groups of all types.
  • To capitalise on the unique Arts and Crafts heritage of the building.
