THE NEXT phase of the Greenfield Valley Trust 10 year strategy will be revealed next month.

The Greenfield Valley Trust, a charity run by a board of volunteers, made a 10 year strategy in 2021 using views from the public and will be updating residents on its progress very soon. 

Brenda Harvey, chair of the Greenfield Trust, said: "We know local people are very fond of the Valley and we are very keen that their views are taken into account as we make detailed plans.

"At the start of November, we are sharing information about what has happened since 2021 and what is being planned in 2024.

"There will be two public information events after which the information will be available at the Valley's Visitor Centre in Greenfield and on our website."

The Trust is holding a small exhibition at the Visitor Centre in Greenfield from 2-6pm on Thursday, November 2, and from 10am-1pm in Tower Gardens in Holywell on Saturday, November 4.

Nearly 150 people gave suggestions back in 2021 leading to drawn up plans for particular parts of the Valley. The full details of the ten year plan can be found here.


The following plans are being looked at during 2024:

  • Refurbish Basingwerk House to create community rooms and spaces to hire for events
  • Enhance the open space between the Abbey, Basingwerk House and the Visitor Centre
  • Expand the visitor centre to make a bigger café and a better entrance
  • Upgrade the whole museum area
  • Enhance other areas including the sites of former mills and Battery Pool and make a fishing lake at Meadow Mill Pool
  • Provide more activities, events and exhibitions and encourage more people to visit
  • Enrich the nature and wildlife
  • Help people to volunteer in the Valley

This work is being funded by a grant from the government’s Shared Prosperity Fund.
