It is expected to be open to the public on August 1.

The estate near Skipton is hugely popular with families during the summer months, and is also running open-air cinema evenings this August.
And if you want to stay in the city, Leeds City Council's City Beach attraction - which features fairground rides, seaside toys, entertainment and food stalls - opens in its new home of Victoria Gardens on August 11. Find out more here.
