Bury Mount

Bury Mount & the Watermeadows, Towcester, commissioned by South Northants Council.
The winning open competition entry for the restoration of the Scheduled Ancient Monument at the heart of the historic town of Towcester ensured the rediscovery of this long forgotten gem through the delivery of unambiguous but sensitive measures which newly express the mount and reconnect it both physically and culturally to the town centre. As part of the first phase of the Moat Lane project it forms the centerpiece to the new retail quarter which has just secured £40 million of private investment by Morgan Sindall Investment Ltd. The project features as an exemplar in both the English Heritage `Constructive Conservation’ Guidance and The Landscape Institute’s `Client’s Guide’, and won the 2011 Museums & Heritage Award for Restoration & Conservation.
