Medieval Suffolk church gets closer to major lottery funding

St Mary's Church in Ickworth has been awarded £52,100 after passing the first round of the English Heritage and Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant application process.

If successful, Ickworth Church Conservation Trust (ICCT) would receive more than £590,000 from the HLF and £325,000 from English Heritage to save the church from ruin.

The trust is hoping that the project will also be considered for an English Heritage ‘Angel’ award, launched recently by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
