It is a huge vote of confidence in the commitment and hard work that has been put in, not just by the members but by the project’s many supporters - Lincolnshire County Council, North Kesteven District Council, Heckington Parish Council, the Charles Haywood Foundation, Bicker Trust, local businesses and the many individuals who have played a part in our success”.
The grant, which is subject to finalising the terms for the acquisition of the building and yard, will enable Heckington Windmill Trust to restore the wider mill site and create a world class visitor attraction around the mill and its Victorian industrial complex.
