But these are exciting times at CAP.Co and our new adventure play build at The Queen's Sandringham Estate, has certainly captured the attention of the media. Even better, the coverage has been hugely positive.
The press correctly reported that the designs were inspired by the buildings around the estate, including the St Mary Magdalene Church. It's a Grade 2 listed building where the Royal Family traditionally attend a Christmas service. There's also the eight-metre play tower that was inspired by the prominent Victoria Appleton Water Tower and a secret enclosed play structure, modelled on the Queen Alexandra's Nest Summerhouse.
It's not all about the architectural empathy to the original buildings however, as there's a gigantic 14 metre tube slide, talking tubes, water play tables and awesome play value designed into the build throughout the site.
Now the planning is in place and the story is in the public domain, we'll show you more as the build progresses.
