Much progress is being made at the Rushden Lakes development, and we are very pleased to announce that the Visitor Centre is starting to resemble an actual building - July can't come soon enough!
The structure is now weathertight and the internal partitions are up. At the moment the buildling looks, feels and smells very 'woodsy', although the ceiling rafters will be soon be covered up by plaster board. We expect this natural ambience to remain when the Centre is complete, thanks to the presence of a cosy cafe as well as plenty of nature-related activities and displays.
One very exciting feature is that the building has a living roof - we're not yet able to climb up and take a look. Construction will soon begin on our Tool Storage building, which is where the sizeable amount of equipment needed to care for such a huge nature reserve will be kept.
