Walled Garden - Entranceway build starts

Walled Garden - Entranceway build starts

Following our recent funding news, our main contractor, DJP Construction, has returned to the Garden to start construction of the new Entranceway, which follows completion of the Pavilion earlier this year.

 

17.08.2015

The Walled Garden Project was always created as a staged project, due to both funding and available resource. This is one of the reasons why a masterplan was created very early on.  It acts as a guide to the overall project and assists in consultation with visitors and stakeholders.

As a consequence of the approach, it can appear at times, that nothing is happening! We understand as much as anyone the desire to 'get into' the Garden!  That is why we have been undertaking some activities in the Garden during the construction project, including behind the scenes tours.  The new Learning Pavilion has been used by visiting schools since being completed in February.

Due to the physical layout of the site, the construction works always had to be finished first before the other features can be put in place, such as planting the Entranceway, laying out the orchard etc... These will take place once the Entranceway is complete.  Once all this is done, we can then open the Garden for visitors to use and enjoy through our public events and learning programmes.

With the Entranceway construction now underway we are another major step closer to delivering on our aim with the Friends of the Museum, to bring the Garden back to life.  Thank you to everyone who has supported this project so far.
