HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND
& RURAL ELECTRICITY GENERATING
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) awards money from The National Lottery to preserve and transform the heritage of the UK through innovative projects that will make a lasting impact on people and places, and bring heritage to life for generations to come.
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) distributes a share of National Lottery funding, supporting a wide range of heritage projects across the United Kingdom.
Funding for essential repairs is not available from the Heritage Lottery Fund for privately owned buildings - no matter how important they may be if they are located in the countryside. That same rules apply to grants from Historic England.
If you own a historic building in the country - you are on your own. Be careful not to get listed or you will be required to comply with reams of regulations and unable to effect repairs without serious legal and planning costs attaching.
MONUMENT AT RISK - The main generating buildings when in need a new roof and other repairs. The felt roof was a temporary measure to prevent water ingress, where privately owned historic buildings are not considered to be important enough to warrant help from the Heritage Lottery Fund or Historic England. A third range of the twin gabled building is missing where it is taken down to remove the large gas engine inside, but not returned to the original layout because of World War Two. Planning permission is not required to re-instate as this would constitute a repair, but in any event Permitted Development rights allow up to a 50% percent increase in area if the height of the original building is not exceeded. The Trust is considering full reinstatement, subject to building regulations being waived to enable an authentic reconstruction.
ANTIQUE DOCUMENT - This is an amazingly rare find, a document dated from February of 1911. These are one of a series of instructions to the engineers who were operating the generating machinery in Lime Park. You may notice that in addition to generating electricity for the village, that plant was in situ for making ice. Luxury indeed in 1911.
