Valley Heritage trustees

We are pleased to announce that Valley Heritage has received a grant of £90,000 over 3 years from the Architectural Heritage Fund to support the future development and resilience of the organisation. The grant will boost our current landmark project, Alliance at the Lancashire & Yorkshire Bank, and enable us to take on more vital and interesting projects across the borough.

“We are delighted that AHF have been able to support us through the HDT Pilot, it will allow Valley Heritage to develop and become even more impactful and ensure that we can work to bring Heritage assets across Rossendale and beyond back into uses which benefit the community.”

Chair, Stephen Anderson

Our continued success is only made possible by those that provide their energy and backing to our organisation and projects, therefore this investment in our future is vital to our growth, progress, and contribution to the area.
