Hayle Project Kier South West
With the opening of our new Welsh factory earlier in the year, Robinson Manufacturing are now able to serve Wales and the South West of England efficiently for the first time. National house builders who trust us in other regions of the UK have been very supportive of the move, and we are delighted to have received our first order from Kier’s South West division.
The Hayle project by Kier South West is at Viaduct Hill, Hayle, on the north Cornish coast. It consists of 131 plots with a mixture of 55 social housing and 76 private dwellings, and the first deliveries are now in place.
Hayle surrounds a beautiful estuary on the edge of St Ives Bay in West Cornwall. Archaeological excavations of Greek and Roman pottery suggest it was an important trading port for tin thousands of years ago and during the industrial revolution copper smelting flourished in the town, the importance of which saw the town’s harbour and townscape being granted World Heritage Site status in 2006.
Hayle was the first town in Cornwall to be awarded “Walkers Are Welcome” status which means the footpaths and trails around the town are well maintained and well-marked and with plenty of rugged countryside around, it’s an ideal place to pull on your hiking boots.
To the west lie 3 miles of golden sands and, with a constant breeze off the Atlantic, the area is well-known for its surfing and wind sailing. Hayle’s wide estuary, managed by the RSPB and the UK most south westerly, is an important stopping off point for migratory birds.
