A new visitor centre to showcase the history of the area and the career of the Arctic Corsair is making good progress. 

Local contractor, Ashcourt Group are on site, creating a new building to Passivhaus standards and will be one of the most energy efficient cultural buildings in the UK.

Construction of the bespoke visitor centre at the North End Shipyard continues as the main structure of the building comes together.

Within the building there will be a classroom and specialist exhibition space which are already taking shape. With the timber roof being added at pace, completion of the Passivhaus building is on track to welcome the arrival of the Arctic Corsair later this year.
