Wentworth Castle Shortlisted in the National Lottery Awards

Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park has been short-listed in the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards in the Best Heritage Project category.

The awards, which are voted for by the public, have been set up to recognise various projects across the country.

There are seven categories in the awards, each reflecting the main areas of lottery funding: Arts, Sport, Heritage, Health, Environment, Education and Voluntary/Charity.

The winning project from each of the categories will receive national recognition at an event later this year, broadcast on BBC One, as well as £2,000 to spend on their project.

Silcock Leedham has worked alongside the team at Wentworth Castle on the recently completed lottery funded renovation works to convert the grade II listed conservatory into a visitor gateway for the castle and gardens.
