Whenever I hear about a well loved site being "redeveloped" or "improved" my heart sinks into my boots and I ask myself if a place has been "ruined " in my opinion.
My fears were in vain when I visited the newly developed Norton Priory today. It's excellent in every way and the development has lost none of the original features whilst adding new ones.
Visitors to the NW England, please take time out of your schedule and call in to Norton Priory, where you will get a taste of hundreds of years of British History all on one site.
I am very intuitive and always have been. The moment I stepped into the new Reception area, I "felt" that I had walked in to something remarkable. The two staff members on the desk were welcoming and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble for Lesley. She knew everything that we could possibly need for an enjoyable visit.
I am a historian of course and own a small history business so I was interested to see how the subject matter was presented. It was all excellent.
Take a look at what I found today.
This is not a history of Norton although that is involved. This is a description of a gentle, quiet and wonderful tourist attraction.
The photos are my own and were taken by me today.
