Boost for Wakefield heritage with £70k grant

Mary met with Fiona Spiers from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Andy Wallhead from Wakefield Council on 11 August to discuss the Wood Street heritage project.


Wood Street heritage project has received a grant of £69,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Entitled “Wood Street heritage – Heart of Wakefield”, the project will engage with hard-to-reach groups and historical organisations to research four iconic listed buildings in the heart of Wakefield: the old police station, the old crown court building, County Hall and the Town Hall.

Mary was then taken on a site tour of the Old Crown Court building and former police station to see the current state of the buildings and to hear more about the project which is due to start in October this year.
