The Master’s House – Update January 2013

The end of 2012 saw a flurry of activity associated with the Master’s House.  At the beginning of December the Project Team submitted its application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant of over a £1 million to help secure the future of the building. The Grant application is for monies towards both the restoration works and for a range of heritage activities and interpretation telling the story of the building as part of a medieval hospital complex.

At the end of December, Listed Building Consent was granted to Herefordshire Council for the proposed works at the Master’s House. Early in the New Year the Project Team will be submitting another bid for funding, this time to English Heritage, for help with the costs of refurbishment.
We will be notified of a decision by the Heritage Lottery Fund in early March 2013.
