Long Load Village Hall

The village hall was built as a church school in 1854 and was used as such until sold by the Diocese to the village hall trustees in December 1965. The hall was to be held in trust for “the use of the inhabitants without distinction of sex or political, religious or other opinions”

Over the years the Hall has been refurbished with a new floor, kitchen and toilets being completed in 2005. Recently, with the substantial aid of the Heritage Lottery Fund, other companies and hard and selfless work by many villagers, necessary internal, structural and external work has been completed. This has left the village with a sound and attractive venue enjoyed by many village and external organisations.

It has a roomy and modern kitchen and recently a piece of adjacent land has been kindly donated at the rear which allows the enjoyment of outdoor events. Regular traditional Village events are held through out the year. The Hall is used by a variety of groups clubs and meetings and is valued as a village asset as it is the only public building in the village.

There is wheel chair access.
