The Aims of Maker With Rame Community Interest Company & Maker Heights:


Our first project concerns the future of Maker Heights. Most of the freehold has been sold off to property developers.

We are keen and committed to ensure that the last remaining freehold asset of the Rame Conservation Trust, the Barrack building (Grade II* Listed), is protected and retained by the community.


Our aim is to take on the management of the Barrack building at Maker Heights.

We will initially carry out essential repairs and improvements to the structure of the building, working towards a larger scale refurbishment in the future.

Until recently this unique and historic building was supported by a thriving community of artistic and creative tenants.  Our management plan for the Barrack building includes promoting the tenants and accommodating local needs. Our vision is to secure Maker Heights for the benefit of our community – forever!

What is Maker Heights?

The Napoleonic barracks of Maker Heights and surrounding land occupies the highest point of the Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with views of farmland, rolling hills and woods, Plymouth sprawled across the other side of the Tamar, and the moors beyond, all bounded by the ever-changing sea.


Rame is one of South East Cornwall’s most vibrant and independent creative clusters, and Maker Heights provided affordable art studios, work spaces, offices, Cabaret/bar, meeting rooms and other facilities for a number of wide ranging creative enterprises and the local community as a whole.


The beauty and diversity of the area has inspired many of the artists to become part of an ever expanding and creative community which includes painters, jewellers, furniture makers, ceramicists, textile artists, festival companies and musicians, as well as several sympathetic ‘non art’ based enterprises such as hosting weddings, corporate and local events such as the 2016 Doctors Graduation Ball hosted in a marquee on the parade ground by Maker Events and Helen Markwood (planner) and The Canteen restaurant.


"Thank you so much for all the work you did for the event; the venue, decorations, food and people couldn't have been anymore prefect. We have had an overwhelming amount of thanks from the attendees and that should really be passed on to you and your team for all the brilliant work! Regards The Grad Ball"
