Heritage Lottery Fund project 2014-2018
In 2014, we were awarded a grant of £3million from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help us carry out vital repairs to our buildings, create a brand new Visitor Centre and establish learning and engagement programmes to help share the wonder of Underfall Yard with a wider audience. The Heritage Lottery Fund project was a huge undertaking for the Trust we move into the post-project era in a much-changed and much stronger position.
AIM Biffa Award National Heritage Landmark Partnership Scheme
In 2014, we were awarded a grant of £120,000 by the AIM Biffa Award National Heritage Landmark Partnership Scheme to help us restore and bring back into use the 1907 hydraulic pumps, the 1950s Accumulator and to repair the header tank that stores water for the system. A team of volunteers run the pumps and they are now regularly demonstrated for visitors.
