We take issues of accessibility of the Cerne Abbas Village Hall to individuals or groups extremely seriously


  • Disabled Parking spaces – immediately adjacent to the Village Hall main entrance 
  • Main Entrance – shallow approach slope, double doors, lit and easily visible 
  • Disabled Access – wide and level entrances 
  • Outdoor Social Areas – level and safe with wide access and bordered with fencing 
  • Automatic Outside Lighting 


  • Internal Doorways – all wide, main traffic areas have wheelchair-friendly double doors 
  • Disabled Toilets – clearly signed, brightly lit and ventilated 
  • Unisex baby changing facilities 
  • Emergency Exits – wide and level, fully signed and lit, leading in all cases to paved exit routes from the site to a marked public mustering area opposite the Village Hall 
  • Emergency Exit Plans showing Routes, Extinguishers and Muster areas are clearly displayed throughout the building 

Special Provisions
