The Stables at Sheepfolds


Building Design Northern are leading the £2m transformation of the Stables at Sheepfolds, Sunderland.

Planning permission has been accepted to transform the Grade II listed stables into an exciting new food, drink and leisure venue. Historically utilised as a stables for working horses, and more recently as car storage, BDN have acquired the derelict buildings to transform them into a vibrant new city centre venue.

The venue will be connected to the city centre by the new Wear footbridge that will provide a pedestrian and cyclist crossing between Sheepfolds and the former Vaux Brewery site, both of which are being spectacularly reimagined as part of Sunderland City Council’s Riverside Sunderland delivery plan.
