What is the Townscape Heritage Project?

In August 2015, Cheshire West and Chester Council submitted a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery for funding to improve and repair some of the timber framed buildings in Northwich.

The funding was to facilitate:

  • Capital works – improvements to some of the unique traditional timber-framed buildings in Witton Street and High Street. This was delivered through a grant support programme.
  • Non-capital initiatives – to promote the heritage and the history of the buildings to residents, visitors and businesses. These included heritage talks and tours, special history sessions for schools, workshops on the management and maintenance of the timber framed buildings, the website and other heritage related projects in the area.

How long did the Townscape Heritage project in Northwich run for?

The project was given permission to start by the Heritage Lottery Fund in March 2015 and closed on 31st January 2023.
