Pilbeam Construction Ltd moved onto the Museum site on Monday 7 March and commenced work on our new Gateway Project buildings – our new visitor centre and café, which are being constructed on the site immediately opposite the Museum entrance.
The millpond has been drained to enable groundworks at its perimeter. This means that, although the watermill will be stewarded and open for visitors to explore, no milling can take place.
We would like to thank our visitors for their understanding during this period of change.
