The Pencil Factory Site Opened Up!

19 January 2018

Site plans from front

We are opening the Pencil Factory site to the public on Friday 9th February. Staff will be on hand to lead tours at midday and 1pm, enabling people to see the site and ask questions about the redevelopment.



Keswick Ministries have now applied for planning permission to turn the derelict Pencil Factory site into conference facilities, relocating the Convention from Skiddaw St. It is an exciting stage in the life of the Derwent Project, all only possible thanks to the extraordinary generosity of God and His people.

For safety reasons, any Open Site Visitors will need to register with us by emailing or calling 017687 80075 by Wednesday 7th February.
