The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber has been a deeply passionate project of the Proudfoot Groups for over 12 years, in which we have helped restore and create an enormously prestigious & popular events location.
The building which was purchased along with the site for our Barton store, was a circa 1,200 ft. long Grade II Listed Ropewalk which has now been reinvented from a unemployed, disused, dilapidated factory building into the stunning center it is today.
Adjacent to The Ropewalk, the Proudfoot Group developed a promenade, which runs the full length of the building and is 60ft wide. Once the promenade was completed the Proudfoot Group handed over a permanent right of way to the local authority for the public to enjoy this unusual walk along the side of the famous Hallmark Rope Factory to the Humber Bridge.
The facilities within the Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber include:
- 2 art galleries
- Arts and craft shop
- Café Bistro
- 12 artists’ workshops
- 18 business units for Creative Industries
- 3,000 sq. ft. unit for Creative Industries

- A very busy Ropery Hall, which is a cinema, theatre staging live music, concerts, comedy acts etc. which is very well supported by the local community and often plays to audiences of 150 plus.
