Many of the UK’s heritage buildings – around two-thirds – are in private ownership and, it is estimated, a similar proportion of the landscape associated with them. HLF is able to assist by providing a range of grants to help secure the future of these, in many cases, rare and fascinating structures, artefacts or artworks.
Despite its many historic and artistic visitor attractions, there is so much more of Yorkshire’s fascinating heritage that goes unnoticed. Now, thanks to Lottery players, this hidden heritage will be revealed through new HLF projects.
The Wedgwood Collection, one of the most important industrial archives in the world and a unique record of over 250 years of British ceramic production, will remain in Barlaston, Staffordshire, on long-term loan from the V&A to the Wedgwood Museum.
