I welcomed the progress that has been made on the new visitor centre and mining museum at Betteshanger country park.
The new mining museum and visitor centre are key improvements being made to the Betteshanger country park by the owners. Previously owned by Hadlow College, the site was rescued by Quinn Estates who have been bringing forward long awaited improvements to the former colliery and spoil heap.
The launch of the visitor centre and the museum marks a significant step forward in the improvements being made at Betteshanger.
Considerable investment has been made by the new owners in rescuing the park. We’ve come a long way since everyone thought that the park might be lost altogether. It was good to have the opportunity to be updated on progress made by the new owners so far and hearing about their plans for the future.
Mark Quinn, CEO of Quinn Estates said “As local developers, we are so proud to continue to deliver improvements for our community. I was pleased to hold a viewing of the new visitor centre and mining museum, which will be open later this year.
“We will continue to promote and protect Betteshanger country park – as we know it is a such vital local asset, ensuring cyclists, walkers and many others have a place to go and enjoy.
“I’d like to thank the community for the incredible support they have given to us as we work to deliver for our area and plan for the future.”
