Allenbourn Sports Pavillion has Survived!
The Sports Pavillion built at Allenbourn School in Wimborne has survived despite being surrounded by nearly two foot of flood waters.
The past few months have seen multiple flood warnings being issued for the River Stour in Dorset. The Environment Agency has consistently been saying flooding has been expected along the Lower Stour from Sturminster Marshall to Christchurch. However, thanks to much work at the design stage the Allenbourn Sports Pavilion has survived. It might be surrounded by up to 2 foot of flood water, but the Log Building which was completed by New Forest Log Cabins in 2011 is standing tall.
When we were asked to work with Architect Gareth Bristow to build a Log Sports Pavilion, little did we know the weather would test the flood defense measures that were key to the long term life of the building. Sales Director for New Forest Log Cabins, John Rudd added that "with many hours of raising and lowering the design and using a series of brick pillars we were able to construct the Sports Pavilion to withstand the threat of flooding, however, this has been put to the test over the recent month of constant flooding of the River Stour that runs nearby".
