How much will the Discovery Centre cost?

Building anything with great care, and within a nature reserve, is expensive.

Even though the land the new centre will be built on doesn’t share the same international protections as the rest of the site, it is still located within the reserve, and the Discovery Centre will be constructed with the environment in mind, made from local, sustainable materials, with the minimum of disturbance to wildlife and habitats surrounding it. 

We currently expect the total costs for the project to be in excess of £4 million.
