Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Round 1 development funding:

​Thanks to a successful  HLF (Round 1 ) bid we will soon receive £106,000 and recruit  3 additional experts to develop our bid to the 2nd Round. If successful, we will receive funding for an innovative Interpretation Hub which will include  an exhibition space, education facilities, a café and a shop. Temporary exhibitions will include collections from the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield and Clifton Park Museum in Rotherham.
