Biggleston Yard is the proposed name for the redevelopment of the former Nasons Department Store site. It's been closed now for more than a year and its redevelopment is vital to the long-term future of Canterbury's city centre.

Biggleston Yard - The Foresters' Hall

While looking to the future by creating a new retail and leisure destination within Canterbury, Biggleston Yard is firmly anchored to the city’s heritage and recognises its industrial history.

At the heart of the Biggleston Yard project is a commitment to ensuring Canterbury continues to be a great place to spend time, whether you’re a resident or visitor.

Thanks to the quality and distinctiveness of what it will offer, it will be a place that will become synonymous with the city.

Biggleston Yard, with its proposed high-quality retailing alongside a focus on food and drink, will incorporate a pedestrian retail arcade and ‘market hall’, with open space and public realm in the heart of Canterbury.
