The Barney’s Ruins Restoration Project

Barney’s Ruins is a derelict cottage and barn located on Paddy Bradley’s home farm in Maghera, Northern Ireland. The property had been neglected for many years and was in a state of disrepair. However, Paddy Bradley saw the potential in the property and decided to undertake a restoration project.

We were delighted Paddy chose to use ElectriCast’s electric cast iron radiators for his project. These radiators not only provided an efficient and cost-effective heating solution, but they also complemented the traditional style of the property. Paddy Bradley’s innovative approach to design meant that he was able to incorporate these modern elements seamlessly into the restoration project.

The Barney’s Ruins restoration project was featured on “Restoration Rescue,” a new BBC Northern Ireland series that followed people across the country as they aimed to bring historical buildings back to life with exciting restoration projects. The episode featuring Barney’s Ruins highlighted the challenges that Paddy Bradley and his team faced during the restoration process and the innovative solutions they used to overcome them.
