Historic UK Foundry Gets Lottery Funding

Harvey's Foundry in Cornwall, England has received a £4 million funds hike courtesy of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

The foundry is part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site (established 1779) and Harvey's Foundry Trust will use the funds to help complete the final phase of the Foundry's 10 year regeneration project.

Trust representatives stated the money will help conserve derelict Grade 2 listed buildings.

The HLF is responsible for distributing some of the funds raised by UK National Lottery Good Causes. HLF grants are awarded to projects that are designed to sustain and transform the British Heritage.
