Ambitious plans to restore the ‘historic heart of Gainsborough are now possible thanks to a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The Gainsborough Townscape Heritage Partnership will see over £1.9 million invested as part of a major project to restore historic buildings and heritage assets in the town. The town centre project will specifically focus on Lord Street and the Market Place.

This funding has been made possible thanks to money raised by National Lottery players. As previously reported, the partnership received a development phase grant of £49,000 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, along with £16,300 of match funding from West Lindsey District Council. This was to develop the plans further and work with business owners to scope out potential projects for the delivery phase. This work was key to be able to unlock this funding.
