Remaking Beamish project update!
The contractors are transforming the site at a remarkable pace, with the vast majority of the 1950s development area now clear. A new access road is being constructed in the middle of the site which will reduce traffic on the museum's roads - it will also serve Spain's Field Farm which is due to start Spring 2018.
Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the project has been awarded £10.9m by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
