Walled Garden - remains on track
Since the new Learning Pavilion was handed over in February, the Museum team, with our Museum Friends, have been busy raising funding to complete the all important entranceway part of the project.
The new Learning Pavilion is already being put through its paces, with a number of local schools making use of the space. We also hosted the recent Green Flag judges in the Pavilion - who were suitably impressed with what we have been achieving.
Behind the scenes we have been busy raising the necessary funding to complete the other major capital works in the garden, the entranceway.
We are delighted that we have now reached that milestone, the news release can be read here. We are now working with the main contractor and our design team to finalise the design before construction.
Previous blogs have covered why the entranceway is so crucial, as can be read here: http://www.museuminthepark.org.uk/blog-article/56/.
Our volunteers have also been extremely busy keeping the site under control whilst we are in this in-between stage in the project. More recently, using information from previous excavations, they carefully uncovered the buried dipping pond in the centre of the Garden. The photograph on this page shows the results from this work.
