Some previous projects
As one of our many Townscape Heritage projects, we supplied all the services needed to develop and write the successful Stage 2 application for the £1.8 million Worksop Townscape Heritage scheme for Bassetlaw District Council in 2017. This involved understanding the physical condition of the buildings in the town and the pressures on, and issues with, the local economy; relating the project to communities and developing meaningful training and engagement activities to encourage local interest in the town.
We developed a successful MoRPHE Project Design for funding from Historic England for the First World War ‘Home Front Legacy‘, an initiative run by the Council for British Archaeology. The project aims to help everyone become involved in recording and safeguarding the physical legacy of the First World War in Britain and the funding allowed the development of training workshops for Historic Environment Record Services (HERS) and an online toolkit and app to allow people to log surviving sites, structures and buildings.
In 2018 we supported the Council for British Archaeology in their successful NLHF Resilient Heritage application. Our work involved bid writing, including providing a fully evidenced explanation of the issues needing to be addressed to safeguard the future of the charity and make it more robust, why help was needed ‘now’, what the project would involve and how it would be evaluated.
