OMI at the Crags

February 11 2005

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded £4.26million to safeguard the future of Creswell Crags in Derbyshire and fund the creation of a new museum and education centre, designed by Manchester-based OMI Architects. The Crags is a limestone gorge believed to mark the most northern explorations of Ice Age man and features the UK’s earliest cave art, which was discovered in 2003.
The new museum and education centre will be set within a heavily wooded plateau overlooking the gorge, acting as a focus for visitors to the site before they move through the gorge itself. OMI expects to make a planning submission in late spring.
