Kirkleatham Estate Development Project

The Kirkleatham Estate is one of the regions most significant heritage assets comprising a wealth of greenspace and impressive buildings and structures - 24 of which are listed in recognition of their national importance. It currently houses an increasingly popular museum with nearby pavilion and play area, which now attract in excess of 100,000 visitors per year. It also houses Kirkleatham School, the popular owl centre, private businesses, residences, the impressive church and mausoleum and the Almshouses. The potential of the showground, walled garden, stables and other land and property across the site offer a major opportunity to complement these existing assets.

We believe that Kirkleatham can become a major regional visitor attraction and a showcase destination for our local heritage, talent and residents. It will be an inspirational place for culture, leisure, business and training bringing opportunities for greater prosperity, employment and wellbeing across our communities.

Over the coming years, the Council aims to secure a sustainable future for the Kirkleatham Estate that would include:
The Walled Garden, Catering and Horticultural Academies will also play a significant part in the development of the Kirkleatham Estate. You can find further information about the restoration and development here.
