By now the new Heritage Fund sponsored Lesnes Abbey Visitor
Centre should have been
nearing completion, instead there is nothing to be seen but a wasteland.
The old Centre was demolished and the site cleared by January and since then almost nothing has been done.
The most notable new feature is that the open mesh Heras fence has been screened to minimise the chances of anyone noticing the lack of progress within. It was until a few days ago only partially screened.
Elsewhere in the park nature is reclaiming the nettle and bramble patches for its own, but the mulberry tree has been given special attention.
