Overview of the programme

The images below provide an overview of how the abbey prog might develop. Please note these images do not include research archaeology (which will likely occupy large parts of the prog) and do not include a garden on the abbey grounds:

The current focus is on the conservation project which will enable and inform the later projects. The programme has been structured as a series of separate projects for the following reasons:

  • To better manage and mitigate any risks;
  • To allow close management of key dependencies between pieces of work; ensuring the results of earlier projects are properly considered and then used to inform subsequent projects; and
  • To enable the trust to establish a track record of delivering projects, in order to gain credibility with key stakeholders and funding groups.
