Heritage Lottery Fund

We were delighted to receive a development grant of £36,000 in December 2011 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to move our design plans forward during 2012.

We are even more delighted to announce that our Stage 2 application to the Heritage Lottey Fund requesting a total of £748,100 was granted in March 2013.

We were incredibly lucky to have our Stage 2 grant extended to £996,000 in December 2017 to cover the cost of major unexpected repairs.
