The Lowestoft Civic Society has been awarded a grant to provide Heritage Skills Training in a unique "hands-on" project. The project is to restore a 17thcentury plaster Ceiling rescued from a grade II listed farmhouse in Stoven, Suffolk prior to its demolition in 1978.
The Heritage Lottery Fund has promised £49,900 for the project, recognising the historical importance of this fine piece of local craftsmanship and the contribution that the restoration process will make to keeping heritage skills alive in East Anglia. The grant means the project has an amber light after a wait of 30 years but further funding is required for the lights to go green.
The project already has schools and groups that are going to assist and more visitors will be always welcomed. You can get your hands dirty, but do come and observe the conservation in action. To arrange a visit please fill in the form below with your contact details.
