Introducing Stories, Stones and Bones from the Heritage Lottery Fund

We are offering grants of £3,000 to £10,000 to projects which engage new people and a wider range of people with their history. From researching local historic landmarks, learning about natural heritage, unearthing the history beneath their feet to delving into archives, our grants will give everyone the chance to explore their heritage and celebrate and share what they learn with others.
