Mick George Earthworks completed Enabling Works at Wimpole Estate

A £6.4million project at The National Trust’s historic Wimpole Estate project to create a brand-new entrance, including a new visitor welcome building and car park that is befitting to the surrounding landscape.

The enabling works supplement the new gateway which will bring the house, gardens, parkland, farm and wider landscape together, highlighting the rich heritage of the destination.

Wimpole Estate Key Statistics

 

  • 27,753m3 of topsoil stripped from arable land and stored in temporary stockpile and permeant landscaping mounds
  • 34,433m3 of reduced level excavation
  • 23,433m3 of engineered fill to make up levels below all formations
  • 11,000m3 of engineered fill to make up fill to the embankments supporting the car park plateau and stabilised to 40% CBR
  • 7,732m3 of in-situ stabilised 30%CBR Non-Frost susceptible ‘Subbase’ replacement to all car park formations
  • Detailed earthworks using the latest in GPS equipped excavators and dozers to form interconnecting swales between the tiered car parking bays
  • Works programmed and delivered over 6 weeks

Wimpole Estate Project

The stately home run by The National Trust opened its doors in the 1970s and today welcomes 300,000 visitors per year.

Visitor numbers can reach up to 1,300 per day at peak times, meaning the existing car-park has been outgrown. The former car-park will be returned to designated parkland landscape.

The scheme will address the shortcomings of the transportation, parking and arrival presented at the Grade 1 Registered Parkland.
