The Trentham Estate in Stoke-On-Trent is planning a major expansion that will include new shops and added features to its gardens.
The development will cost around £7 million and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2017.
The shopping village will offer visitors 26 new shops, added to the existing shops, cafes and restaurants.
Many of the new shops are already under offer to new occupiers, with details of these new attractions expected to be announced over the coming months.
Many groups that visit Trentham Estate, enjoy the gardens that surround the shopping village and these will also be expanded.
Nigel Dunnett, known for landscaping London’s Queen Elizabeth Park for the 2012 Olympics, is developing new landscaping for Trentham Estate, including a new woodland garden and perennial entrance garden.
More about Trentham Estate
The gardens at Trentham Estate have been restored by landscape designers to create a modern landscape with features suited to the interests of visitors.
Included amongst the gardens is a fairy sculpture trail, a ‘barefoot’ sensory walk, adventure play area, lakeside trails and a woodland park.
The estate is also home to Trentham Monkey Forest which allows visitors to walk amongst more than 140 free roaming monkeys with an aerial treetop adventure course available too.
This year Trentham Estate is celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, who played a big role in the creation of the lake and parkland during the 18th century.
