The £16million leisure regeneration project Northgate Yard site officially opened earlier today, (24 October)
In a nod to the history of the site a horse and dray were on site as a reminder of the past when this area was home to brewers, Starkey, Knight and Ford, whose logo can still be seen on old pubs in and around the town and was the inspiration for the Northgate yard logo.
From Tuesday 25th October visitors can enjoy Brewery Field, a rejuvenated town-centre green space including parkland, and an urban wetland and the brand-new children’s play park.
The new 115 space car park with electric vehicle charging hub is now also open to the public. Visitors are invited to take a look around the new Scott Cinemas from 25th October and drop into its cafe-bar, open from 9am until 5pm daily.
