Delapré Abbey, Northamptonshire
Delapré Abbey is a Heritage Lottery Funded project which will open the house to the public for the first time in August 2017. We are working with the project team, including trustees to provide interpretation across a huge site which includes stable blocks, the 900-year-old Abbey which has been extended over time into a large family home, gardens and battlefield.
The site will be shown largely unrestored, the interpretation has been developed to ask questions and spike the visitors’ imagination encouraging them to investigate clues which have been planted for them to discover.
Solutions include tactile models and interactives which have been developed to be restored and maintained by volunteers.
