About the Project
The building will be a high quality single storey wooden construction adjacent to the Canal & River Trust buildings at Batchworth Lock. The building will have disabled access and the main teaching area would be up to 100 sqm to provide an ideal environment for delivering Learning at the Lock and other education programmes for both adults, children and the general public.
