Kiplin Hall, Scorton

Kiplin Hall was awarded £13,706 to provide play equipment in the grounds of this 17th century historic hall, built by George Calvert Secretary of State to James 1st and founder of Maryland  USA.  The project purchased and installed a Play Ship – the Ark & the Dove – based on the setting sail of 150 settlers from England heading for north of Virginia and led by George Calvert’s son.  The Play Ship has been installed in a section of garden allocated as a children’s play area and has already resulted in a significant increase in visits to the Hall.
