The physical work to transform the Hillington Square estate has been under way for some time now and things are beginning to look a little different.

One of the most significant changes to the estate began on Monday when the demolition of five-storey block forming part of Valentine House began. A long-reach excavator ‘nibbled’ away at the block of nine flats to slowly open up the estate to the rest of King’s Lynn and dramatically change the appearance of the estate.

Freebridge’s chief executive Tony Hall says: “I am delighted that this next stage of the work to regenerate Hillington Square is underway. The opening up of the estate with this demolition is a very exciting part of a redevelopment that will make a real difference to the area and the town of King’s Lynn as a whole.”

Last Thursday and Friday saw members of the public being given the chance to go ‘behind the scenes’ at Hillington Square with Lovell, the team working on the extensive improvement programme. The two-day Open Doors event included site tours, hands-on activities and workshops, careers and training advice and the opportunity to talk to the Lovell team working on the extensive improvement programme.

The event on the square  forms part of the nationwide Open Doors initiative aimed at raising the profile of construction and encouraging more people to consider working in the industry.
