The New Year has brought new activity on Northam Burrows as work begins on the complete refurbishment of the old Visitor Centre and installation of a new café alongside the original building.
Construction Director Mark Davis said “We are pleased to be part of the team to redevelop this centre which will bring much needed facilities for everyone to enjoy”.
As well as reinsulating the old centre to bring it up to modern standards the interior layout will also be updated. An important part of this is the addition of a fully accessible “Changing Places” room which will provide the enhanced space and equipment for people who cannot use standard toilet facilities and another much needed specialist facility for visitors to the Burrows. The changed layout will also allow for a separate teaching area alongside the main exhibition space which will be available to the many school groups that visit for environmental education sessions with the park rangers.
