About Heritage Lincolnshire

Heritage Lincolnshire is a local charity working to conserve the rich history of the County for the benefit of people who live and work in the area.

We work to advance our understanding and appreciation of archaeology, historic buildings, traditions and culture and work with a wide range of partners. As an active Buildings Preservation Trust we have experience of securing funding for the conservation of historic buildings at risk.

We also offer a range of opportunities for education, volunteering, and leisure activities, all of which encourage people to explore the heritage of the area and to become actively involved in its conservation.

In 2016 we're celebrating 25th anniversary of being registered as a charity. We've achieved an incredible amount over the years:

  • £25 million has been raised
  • 8 historic buildings have been saved from dereliction
  • participation in the annual Heritage Open Days has risen to over 25,000 visitors
  • numerous high quality projects, services and activities that make a real difference to Lincolnshire, its residents and visitors to the area.

These are only a few of the highlights! None of this could be achieved without our dedicated team of staff and volunteers and the commitment of our board of trustees, funding partners and members.

Our schedule of celebratory events is shaping up nicely and it's sure to be an exciting year! We hope that you'll join us in our celebrations so keep an eye on our website and social media channels for more details.
