The largest ever UK national park construction project has got underway in Northumberland.

The £14.8m Sill project will become the UK’s first dedicated Landscape Discovery Centre. It will form a hub of extensive learning, participation and research activities for landscape, conservation, countryside management, and leisure and tourism skills.

The Sill, which will also offer hostel accommodation, retail facilities and a café, is expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors each year. Due to be fully operational from summer 2017, it is predicted to deliver substantial economic benefits to the region with around £5m of additional visitor spending every year. A Rural Growth Hub will support the development of rural enterprises, and offer a wide range of volunteering activities to strengthen local communities through increased participation opportunities.

Sir Robert McAlpine will work alongside the core design team - including architects Jane Darbyshire and David Kendall; planners Cundall; landscape architects Glen Kemp; interpretation designers, Bright 3D; Structural and Civil Engineers, Patrick Parsons Limited; and project managers, Gardiner and Theobold.
