This expansion is a major development for the creamery which will lead to additional jobs being created and more money coming into the areaDavid Hartley,

With visitor numbers increasing, the creamery needed to expand its visitor centre. It planned to double the size of the cheese shop, enlarge the coffee shop and also the souvenir shop in order to showcase the creamery’s wide range of produce. BSP undertook the flood risk assessment as part of the planning application for the scheme.
Due to the location of the site within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park local, traditional materials were sourced to complement the surroundings. The design of the new extension incorporates these traditional materials in a contemporary style, which provides a grounded – yet light and airy – feel and incorporates a ‘green’ sedum roof to soften the visual impact of the low level roof and assist in controlling rainwater run off.
