The Sill project is the biggest investment in Rural Northumberland +opening June 2017

Great to visit the building site for the Sill last week. This is going to transform West Northumberland in so many ways. There is going to be 80+ beds for kids and tourists to use, which will massively boost tourist numbers and the revenue spend. The architecture on its own will make the sill a destination. And as a visitor centre it is going to be something special. Full credit to the team behind it, but it is a massive project funded largely by Heritage Lottery money and it was great to bring the Heritage Minister on site on Thursday of last week.
