Simon Aspinall Wildlife Education Centre

The unprecedented popularity of the 2006 Visitor Centre meant that it soon lacked space for education and interpretation.

A successful bid to the HLF, with input from LSI via ProHelp, allowed a proposed extension to proceed to Stage 2 of development at Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Cley Marshes Visitor Centre, helped by a major donor. The tight site required the renewables strategy to be completely revisited.

The extended wildlife education centre will meet a growing demand for people of all ages to learn about the North Norfolk coast.  Renewable technologies are to be replaced by alternatives, allowing a new building to be constructed to the rear of the Centre, creating a sheltered courtyard for outdoor activity between the two.

LSI proposed to locate the new building behind the existing visitor centre with courtyard between the two.
