New Holkham visitors' centre due to open 'late summer'
A new visitors' centre at Holkham nature reserve is nearing completion nearly three years after planning permission was granted.
The construction of the Orientation Centre, at the beach end of Lady Anne's Drive, won't be complete in time for the entire summer season.
Notices on the board near to where the centre is taking shape confirm that the completion date is set for "the late summer."
At present the estate is unable to confirm exactly when the opening is due to go ahead.
Construction work began on the site in September and by November the concrete piling was complete. Earlier this year its steel frame and roof boarding was completed.
The centre is intended to educate visitors about the rare wildlife on the reserve and the impact their visit can have, act as a meeting and information point and provide refreshments and toilet facilities.
