Father’s Barn Market & Signpost Cafe in Rubery CLOSED until further notice following a serious fire in the early hours of this morning. It is thought the fire started from an electrical fault in the main building.

Four appliances from Hereford and Worcestershire Fire and Rescue attended the fire which began in the early hours of this morning and was spotted by West Mercia  police officers. The main building was devastated by fire while the adjacent florist shop and cafe avoided major damage.

The market houses stalls held by small traders, a children’s play area, a florists and a cafe. The current owner, Ian Robinson, took over late last year and the market is now a bustling part of the Rubery community.
