The Severn Rivers Trust (SRT) is on the hunt for an architect for a new education centre near Ludlow Castle in Shropshire
Located next to Dinham Weir, the planned building is part of SRT’s £4.2 million ‘Springs of Rivers’ project which aims to enhance wildlife habitats along a 200 km stretch of the River Teme.
Water quality improvements, flood alleviation measures and a new ‘Teme Way’ walking route are also proposed.
According to the contract notice: ‘We are developing plans to construct an education centre at Dinham in Ludlow to benefit the local community and provide a hub for the project’s activities across the catchment.
‘The project requires the design and complete project management for the construction of the site including both land and building to compliment the local heritage of the area alongside an exemplar for water management within the site.’
The document continued: ‘We will use the area to highlight the fantastic natural heritage of the Teme Catchment and enthuse all visitors to the site to protect and benefit the river.’
Nearby landmarks include the historic Dinham Bridge (pictured) and Ludlow Castle, which was first built in the eleventh century following the Norman invasion.
The deadline for applications is 31 January.
