Down cafe and shop to close for £30,000 refurbishment
National Trust is temporarily closing its shop and cafe at Brean
Down for a month while it gives the property a £30,000 refurbishment.
The well-used facilities at the foot of Brean Down will close
from October 30th for a period of around four weeks while the
work is undertaken.
Manager Jason Harmer told Burnham-On-Sea.com this week: "We're
taking advantage of the quieter autumn period to carry out a number
of improvements, including introducing a brand new coffee counter
and updated internal decorations."
is exactly a year since the National Trust took over the facilities,
as Burnham-On-Sea.com reported here.
A new visitor centre has recently opened in the car park, providing
information about the history of the rocky outcrop.
And a rebrand of the shop is also being planned with more focus
on National Trust branded merchandise.
