The Sill Project has begun in Northumberland National Park

Great to visit the site of The Sill building project and meet the new director Dr Sarah Glynn. The Sill is providing lots of jobs in the building process and will be an iconic visitor centre, with amazing architectural design, at Twice Brewed. The bed capacity for young people to visit the park, the enhanced visitor numbers to the National Park and west Northumberland generally, and the business units created, are all only good things. I have played a v small part in helping get this project off the ground and was delighted to see the progress being made. I met the building team and they are on track and on schedule. But rest assured this design - whilst only a building site now - will make us all feel very proud. Will update as the building goes up.
