Project Description

Hever Castle is the Grade 1 listed childhood home of Anne Boleyn located in Hever, Kent.

FRLA designed the ‘Acorn Dell’ play space for children under 7 years old. FRLA provided the initial conceptual designs, from these Duncan & Grove created several 3D models. These were used to liaise with the play inspector and engineer to ensure they were structurally adequate and complaint with EN 1176 before producing detailed construction drawings.

The final play space consisted of a mix of proprietary Duncan & Grove playground equipment and larger bespoke pieces. The timber was a mix of oak and robinia with stainless steel fixings. A large stainless steel tube slide was installed along with polypropylene ropes and nets.
