Work starts on the live build project in Blakehope Nick

The project is part of the Revitalising Redesdale scheme, which aims to celebrate the environment and culture of the area by highlighting the value and importance of the surrounding landscape.

The Heritage Lottery funded viewing platform and shelter is being built at Blakehope Nick as part of the wider Revitalising Redesdale initiative. The students have completed their first week on site, resulting in the substructure, platform and the lower portions of the twisting pentagon frames now being in place. 

The group are documenting their progress on this blog which is regularly updated with lots of great photos and insight into the construction.
