BRIGG FAMILIES WILL BE INTERESTED IN VIKING-THEMED ACTIVITY CENTRE WITH CAFE & CHILDREN'S AREA
People living in the Brigg area who are always looking for places to visit with children and grandchildren will be interested in a new development planned just a short drive from our area.
Permission is being sought to change the use of a redundant barn and surrounding field into a themed outdoor activity centre with cafe and toddler play area.
The proposed location is off Nettleton Road, Caistor - along the Viking Way Public Footpath, which runs from the Humber at Barton, via Barnetby and Caistor to Rutland.
West Lindsey and Lincolnshire planners have been told the facility will include assault courses, ropes and outdoor play equipment centred around a Viking theme.
A striking Viking Longboat climbing frame will form the centrepiece.
An existing barn at the entrance to the site will also accommodate the café and small indoor play area where younger children can participate in crafts and other educational activities.
The application, submitted by someone living in Grimsby, is now being considered by the relevant planners - NOT North Lincolnshire Council.
Grimsby's legendary founder was Havelok The Dane, while village and town names ending in 'by' and 'thorpe' link back to the Viking era.
