Norton Priory monastic site Visions project funded


An excavated monastic site in Runcorn is to gain £100,000 in funding to help bring its history to life by using projections.

Norton Priory Museum is using the grant for its Visions project.

"Vivid medieval colours" will be projected on some of the site's 13th Century walls and on the twice life-sized statue of St Christopher.

Facial reconstructions of some of the people buried at the site will also be seen in public for the first time.

A museum spokesman said the projection technology would be similar to that used on Buckingham Palace during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
