The Heritage Lottery Fund

The Heritage Lottery Fund provided £737,000 to restore the basic infrastructure of Warley Woods and this was spent on fencing, pathways, benches, bins, tree works and new trees. It also paid for a community archaeological dig. This work was completed in December 2007. The Heritage Lottery Fund also funded our Oral History Project which ran in 2012-2014.
