Restoring the Historic Heart of Gainsborough

Heritage Lottery funding

Historic Heart

The Townscape Heritage Initiative aims to restore the “historic heart of Gainsborough” by improving the standard of repair and reinstating

the original appearance of properties within the town centre conservation area.

West Lindsey District Council was successful in its bid for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help restore and improve some of the historic buildings in Gainsborough town centre. As well as improving the town centre, this will also help local people and visitors better understand the built heritage of the town.

The Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) is the Heritage Lottery Fund’s grant-giving programme for the repair and regeneration of the historic environment in towns and cities throughout the UK.
