Projects

Land of historic or design interest, buildings large or small, ancient or fairly new – any of these may be of interest to Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust.

Our notable project to date is The Station in Richmond, a stunning, riverside, Victorian railway building brought back to life as a fantastic cultural, eating, shopping and entertainment venue for the local community and visitors to Richmond. The Station has just celebrated its tenth birthday in its successful new role.  

We are now working on a Round 2 Heritage Lottery Enterprise Grant to devise and work up plans and assess the viability for creating a Community Hub in The Old Grammar School in Richmond, supported by a range of other facilities to ensure financial stability.

Applications are also invited from individuals and organisations who may need advice and/or a contribution towards work on smaller projects where a significant building is at risk.

We are willing to support minor projects to carry out works of conservation These include repair of properties in the ownership of smaller charities, Parish Councils or even private groups and individuals. A small grant can make a real difference to maintenance or repair of a significant building or structure or promote significant relevant education in Richmondshire.
