Heritage Fund

Read about the great restoration and improvement work done with help from the national lottery heritage fund.

The Heritage Fund approved a grant for Brierley Church that required us to fundraise a percentage of the cost of works which we fulfilled in 2018. The work comprised a number of improvements and repairs that the church badly needed. Now the works are complete our parishioners and community can really benefit from the improved facilites and that some of the historic features have been preserved for another generation. Please support any National Lottery Heritage Fund project in your area as they provide much needed funds for a wide number of diverse causes in UK heritage.

From all in the parish and the wider community - THANK YOU HERITAGE FUND!
