Biffa Award Welcome Building
Moving the carpark away from the downs gave us the opportunity to provide a bigger and better welcome for all visitors.
When the charity began in 1985, membership signups were organised from a small car park portacabin. Previously the only contact we had with our visitors was through their car window as they bought a ticket. So we were thrilled when the Welcome Building opened in June 2014.
Here visitors can be properly welcomed, find out more information about their visit, signup for membership and pick up a mobility scooter.
On a bright sunny day in June 2014 we celebrated the opening of the Welcome Building, by our Patron the Duchess of Cornwall and a number of project donors and supporters.
The Welcome Building is continually evolving. The beautiful curved timber-framed building has been a hugely positive addition, providing a hub for information, membership signups, and additional interactive interpretation for all who visit.
