This site has been installed in two stages, reaching completion in February 2012. The first stage is a play area whose impressive focal point is a bespoke castle-themed multiplay unit. Stage Two features a robust M.U.G.A. where all ages can play together.
Sarah Brion, Senior Green Space Officer at Wycombe District Council is among those who are delighted with the project and says:
'The new play area at Desborough Castle has proved a success with the local children of the area. Peter Faulkner and the team from HAGS worked with Wycombe District Council and English Heritage over a period of 18 months to successfully install this brand new facility. The play area is located on a scheduled ancient monument and required English Heritage approval of the play area design and installation detail. HAGS worked hard to achieve this by amending the design for the play area several times to meet the requirements and ensuring that ground foundations did not exceed 600mm in depth, so that no archaeology was disturbed. The play area finally opened in February 2012 and children from a local school attended, the children enjoyed playing on this new area and sent in thank you drawings and messages to the council.'
