We're aiming to raise £5,000 towards the development of a heritage park showcasing artefacts of county life from Neolithic times to today.
The four acre facility, which will be located on land on the banks of the River Nene close to Billing Aquadrome, will be home to a purpose built museum housing the regionally important 3000+ item Hollowell Collection, put together by local archaeologist Richard Hollowell and his two sons over 40 years. Visitors will also benefit from a learning opportunities for local children, rare breed animals, a nature trail and, eventually, heritage river boat trips.
Currently with outline planning permission, the £5,000 crowdfunding target will take the project to full planning consent. Any money raised beyond that will go towards the next phase of the project.
