Useful Information
Wisbech High Street Project

“Fenland District Council has been awarded a grant of around £1.9 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund Townscape Heritage scheme for the Wisbech High Street Project.

Thanks to National Lottery players, the project will restore a number of buildings on the High Street, bring new uses back into empty properties and transform the derelict former Cook’s Butchers site at number 24 into an exciting new area for public use.

The award from the HLF is a big boost for the town. It comes as the reward for two years’ hard work by the Wisbech Society the Core team at FDC and community champions that put together the two stages of the bid. The funding comes from the HLF’s Townscape Heritage programme.

Alongside the High Street building improvements there will be a series of heritage-related activities for local community learning and participation. These include photographic workshops, heritage construction skills courses, conservation workshops and archaeological investigation.

More information about the project, information on the history of the High Street buildings, updates on the activities and how you can get involved can all be found on the projects very own website : http://www.highstreetwisbech.org.uk  You can also follow us on Facebook (search Wisbech high Street Project) and on Twitter (@highstwisbech)”
