Works Complete on Norton Priory

Works Complete on Norton Priory

Keelagher Okey Klein provided Principal Designer and CDM Advisor services on the recently completed £4.5m project to redevelop and extend Norton Priory Museum and Gardens in Cheshire. The project was designed by Buttress and constructed by HH Smith & Sons.

The 47-acre historic site contains the remains of a 12th century abbey complex and an 18th century country house. The site is considered to be a monastic site of international importance and opened as a museum in 1982.

The project has seen the undercroft, which is the only part of the priory still standing, incorporated into the existing museum building. This involved building a gallery space that sits above the undercroft, offering visitors views across the remains and gardens.
