Field Farm, Shepton Mallet
The Field Farm development (also known as Tadley Acres) for Bloor Homes and the principle land owner, the Duchy of Cornwall, was commenced in 1996 with the last phase completed in 2012. In total the development has provided a new community of around 600 homes with employment uses and a site for a primary school.
The development was pioneering in its high quality approach to urban design and use of the traditional architectural vernacular. In particular the classical architectural detailing and the approach to adopt the use of natural and local materials has reinforced a distinctive sense of place which has been recognised with several design awards.
